A gigantic spaceship is mysteriously suspended over Cape Town in South Africa and the humans, who despise the aliens, gigantic prawns, confine them in a miserable refugee camp before killing them like Nazis.
The film directed by Neil Blomkamp (South Africa/United States/New Zealand/Canada 2009, 112’) recounts through a mockumentary a pungent allegory of our contemporary failing to offer hospitality. Action, satire, horror, excellent digital effects and political provocation make this the most “original and innovative science fiction film for years.”
