Alive in Joburg
A beautiful and revolutionary movie
Most interesting in this film it's that, on the one hand, it's a science fiction. On the other hand, in contrast of what it happens in the majority of these films, history occurs in the past, in 90's. The director Neill Blomkamp uses a clear metaphor of racism, not only between whites and blacks, but between races in a ampler way. Using sci-fi and journalistic and documentary style, Blomkamp displays a courageous vision of the conflict between the races: if we observe intently, the great majority of that who discriminate aliens is the African people; ironically, they are those that would have to better understand the situation of aliens. The moral of Neill Blomkamp's fable is that any race can be racist, if it not have understanding. It is a beautiful film, and an appeals for compassion and peace between races.
