Club Blog

On Tuesdays, Mr. Sanchez runs the World Cinema Club. Daniel (M5) told me they had just finished watching District 9 - where an alien spaceship has a breakdown above Johannesburg and aliens are put in camps while waiting to figure out how to repair the spaceship. This movie raised some questions that they discussed in the club: What is the link with the current refugee crisis and the apartheid? How does the movie represents history in a modern way? Is there life out there in the universe? What is the likelihood of an alien conquest? As I left, Daniel and Nigel (M4) faced the difficult decision to choose what to watch next!
