District 9 opening sequence mis en scene analysis:
The scene starts off with showing travel in a car and a big space ship showing that the film is based in the future because of the space ship but with the old cars on the streets instead of something like hover cars it isn’t too far in the future.
When they are flying around the buildings look very futuristic and if they are flying it is obviously based in the future because you do not generally fly round now
The aliens show that the film is based with aliens and the text that comes up shows us that they have been on earth for 28 years and want to go home and is obviously based far in the future
The bullet proof vests and guns show that there is going to be action or war against the aliens
The aliens and humans fight
