DISTRICT 9 + POST SCREENING LECTURE

images 6South Africa/ 2009/112 mins

Dir: Neill Blomkamp

As part of our Sci–Fi Season, this school screening, suitable for AS/A2 Level students will be followed by an interactive lecture from Matt Beere, Chapter’s Learning Officer. The 45 minute lecture will contextualise the film within modern South African cinema and will focus on the text as an analogy for Apartheid.

From producer Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and director Neill Blomkamp comes a startlingly original science fiction thriller that “soars on the imagination of its creators” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). With stunning special effects and gritty realism, the film plunges us into a world where the aliens have landed… only to be exiled to a slum on the fringes of Johannesburg. Now, one lone human discovers the mysterious secret of the extraterrestrial weapon technology. Hunted and hounded through the bizarre back alleys of an alien shantytown, he will discover what it means to be the ultimate outsider on your own planet.
