VOTD: Neill Blomkamp's TED Talk: Life On Other Planets And The Future Of Human Civilization

/Film reader Kashif Pasta sends along word that District 9 director Neill Blomkamp recently gave a TED Talk at TEDxVancouver, and the video of his 13-minute presentation is now online.

So you undoubtedly know about TED talks, and of TEDx, the independently-organized TED events around the world. We had one recently in Vancouver, where Neill Blomkamp was a speaker. The video of his talk went up a couple of days ago, and regardless of whether it contains the direction of his next/a future film (which I strongly feel it does) that he's going to do, it's a pretty captivating, theoretical science-driven vision of our universe, life on other planets, and the future of human civilization in a way that most of us probably haven't ever thought of. I think you'll love it.
