An ET race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth finds a kindred spirit in a government agent.

South Africa/USA/New Zealand/Canada | 112 min | R | BluRay | Dir. Neill Blomkamp

An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent who is exposed to their biotechnology. (IMDb)

"District 9 is very smart sci-fi, but that's just the beginning, it's also a scathing social satire hidden inside a terrific action thriller teeming with gross aliens and regrettable inter-species contact. And it's a blast." -Betsy Sharkey (LA Times) 

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
