Laughing At The Dark
In a country gripped by fear, it took one man to stand up… and show everyone the funny side.
Often risking life, PIETER-DIRK UYS's special brand of cross dressing comedy exposed the evil and absurdity of South African Apartheid during its darkest days. Now loved by millions around the world, he continues to shine a light on injustice, working tirelessly in the fight against HIV/AIDS. This compelling portrait, featuring fans like Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Charlize Theron, Sophia Loren and the late, great Nelson Mandela shows us how PIETER-DIRK UYS is a performer like no one else.
