Alive in Joburg: "

From Neill Blomkamp, the director of the Citroën Transformer ad, comes an unsettling and eerie tale of a close encounter of the third kind in Johannesburg, South Africa. Watch Alive in Joburg (rather large quicktime file) for some great special effects. The discrimination of visitors from another world makes for an interesting allusion to Apartheid, and something like this is what War of the Worlds should have been like.

UPDATE: the file has been renamed. Try here!

UPDATE 2: The film is now at, where bandwidth won’t be a problem! Enjoy!!
