This short film, "Alive in Joburg" was directed by Neill Blomkamp and served as the basis for the AWESOME "District 9." Shot in 2005 the short was produced by Sharlto Copley, who stars in "District 9" and has a small part here. It is interesting to see the changes that Blomkamp made for the feature length film. This is a great short, and can be enjoyed even if you don't plan on seeing the movie. But come on, see the movie. It is really, really good.
