Alive In Joburg
South Africa/ Canada
Edited in a documentary style, this highly original sci-fi drama takes on discrimination (with a twist). Persecuted extraterrestrials have left their planet only to find themselves in 1990 South Africa during apartheid. Their large space ships can be seen hovering above Johannesburg and sucking power from the nuclear power plants. At first, the aliens are welcomed, but are forced to live amongst the already-oppressed black population. The growing tensions between the blacks, the white Afrikaners and the aliens escalate… Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp. He has been selected to direct the upcoming Halo film (based on the popular game).
