Based on Blomkamp's short film Alive in Joburg, District 9 depicts a fictional world where extraterrestrials have become refugees in South Africa. Wikus (Sharlto Copley) is a Multi-National United agent who becomes infected by alien biotechnology. He must go on the run from the oppressive government into District 9, a internment camp where "non-humans" have been forced to live since landing on Earth nearly 30 years ago.

District 9 hits theaters on August 14th 2009.
