Awesome Short Film, Check It Out Now!

Alive In Joburg, a stellar short film directed by Neill Blomkamp, is an eerie tale of the arrival of aliens in Johannesburg, South Africa. It's done in a documentary style, and is absolutely fascinating. Instead of an invasion, the aliens quickly become the victims of rampant discrimination, and are forced to live in slums. It's really an amazing little film. It's extremely well done. Let me know what you think.

It kinda freaked me out, but it was very well-done. I wonder if they're alluding to the flood of illegal immigrants there that have become the new minority.

That's what it sounded like to me, that along with heavy doses of apartheid. Pretty cool little flick.
