Devland, Soweto, is an informal settlement in Johannesburg that hosts an underground community of ‘surfers’ championing activism hundreds of kilometers from the waves. Waste-pickers known as street surfers collect up to 90% of the recyclables from households in South Africa, all while struggling to make ends meet. In Street Surfers, we follow Frank as he meets Mokete and Thabo, and explore an untold story of new friendships, shared experiences and common interest between individuals that are worlds apart.
