Since 2009, District 9 has been analyzed with regard to different topics by various scholars. While these analyses include postcolonial perspectives and issues, there has not been a comprehensive analysis of the film in a postcolonial perspective so far. Also, District 9 has received a lot of criticism for supposedly racist depictions of South African minorities over the years, but there has not been a judgment from a perspective specifically focused on an analysis of the satire applied in the film. This book aims at presenting both a postcolonial and a satire-focused perspective on District 9 with regard to social and racial issues in contemporary South Africa. In doing so, it also addresses South Africa's troubled past of Apartheid.
