When I was looking up District 9's director, Neill Blomkamp to see what else he had done, his resume was fairly small, but did list "Alive in Joburg", a film short. I didn't think anything of it, except District 9 also took place in Johannesburg, South Africa. I had no idea Alive in Joburg is what District 9 was based off of. In fact, you could view it as a prequel given that it takes place in 1990. It's really a great short, and all of the feel and vibe of the motion picture is neatly packed into just a six minute short. The whole of it is above, enjoy!
