Movie Night:  District 9

Thursday, October 22, 2015

6:00pm to 8:00pm

University Center 122

At first glance, “District 9” is an action-driven science-fiction film that, in the words of its producers, “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.” At closer look, “District 9” can be read as a comment on South Africa’s apartheid system and, more generally, an exploration of our treatment of “others.” Who are the aliens, who are the humans, who is a member of a community, and who is an outsider?  Professor Angelika Hoelger (History) will lead a brief discussion after the film.
