The Reclaimers

Sifiso Khanyile 20:40 South Africa

An intimate portrait told in three acts. This documentary follows the life and work of three of Johannesburg’s informal recyclers or reclaimers and their bid to gain recognition as formal labourers in the city. We tread on their heels as they navigate homelessness, the law, and survive the big city that is Johannesburg.
