Laughing At The Dark

SYNOPSIS

“I mean it when I say you (Pieter-Dirk Uys) are one of my heroes”
Nelson Mandela

“He truly is a legend”
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“He’s impossible to put in a box”
Charlize Theron

In a country gripped by fear, it took one man to stand up… and show everyone the funny side.

With a huge fan base that counts Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Charlize Theron, Sophia Loren and the late, great Nelson Mandela in its numbers, PIETER-DIRK UYS is a performer like no one else.

Often risking life, his special brand of cross dressing comedy exposed the evil and absurdity of the Apartheid regime during its darkest and most brutal days. Now loved and admired by millions around the world, he continues to shine a light on injustice, working tirelessly in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

This film brings us up close to a truly remarkable man, whose extraordinary life is an inspiration to all of us.
