Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Aug 16th at 3:30 pm for District 9 at the Regal Gallery Place . Look for Brian wearing a “Come On Feel the Illinoise” t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Aliens become refugees in South Africa where they are kept isolated from any human contact. While being contained in the refuge being ignored of their welfare, their weapons become the sole interest of Multi-National United (MNU). But only one man , Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley), can activate these weapons. He becomes hunted for and only one place can give him refuge, District 9. From producer Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) and writer/director Neil Blomkamp.
