District 9 – What Does it Mean?

by Scott Caldwell

So we have been watching videos, we have been clicking links, and we have been posting every single thing we can possibly find on what District 9 the “movie” is. But what does District 9 actually mean? It’s been mentioned as an apartheid movie. But I bet it’s a lot closer to home than we think.




I was looking around at the panoramic view on the District9Movie.com site and I noticed something. Something that at a quick glimpse, you may just continue to let the screen move on you. But! As a site that loves it’s viral, we scan every single little dot on the screen, just hoping, for something to show. Waiting for a sound. But we always look for the surprise?  We never look at what is really there.

This is a screen shot taken from the background of the site:





Can you see it? Look closer.


You are looking in the shed aren’t you? Looking for the surprise. Look above.


Look familiar? It should:





Is all of the fighting and discrimination of District 9 the same thing that we see on a regular basis between the United States and Mexico?


Think about it.


“They are taking our jobs”
“We pay for the health care”
“We can’t understand what they are saying”


You hear that just about everyday. Now, you are hearing it through the trailers of District 9. Watch an interview with a local on CNN or MSNBC. Even your local news. You will hear it. So is that what District 9 is all about? Is it really about aliens, or is it about illegal aliens?


And on a lighter note, aliens make a chemical that makes you loose control and your eyes get all weird and you become one of them.


Mexicans call that “hot sauce”


Goodnight! You’ve been great!


Keep your eyes and ears open the next time you see some District 9 footage. See if you spot anything else. I know I will.
