Failed by society in general and by our economic and education systems in particular, dispossessed and disregarded youth from Soweto risk the ultimate sacrifice while surfing on moving trains in an elusive search for affirmation. Surfing Soweto is a documentary that follows the lives of three of the most notorious train surfers in Soweto: Bitch Nigga, Lefa and Mzembe.
The original documentary, available for viewing on You Tube, has recently been updated and turned into an 82 minute feature. For a copy of the DVD, contact producer/director Sara Blecher. She can be reached at 083 647 9038 or [email protected].
