Darling! The Pieter Dirk-Uys Story
This acclaimed debut from director Julian Shaw presents a portrait of AIDS activist, female impersonator and satirist, Pieter Dirk Uys.

As an entertainer, Dirk Uys' wit is a joy to behold. As an AIDS campaigner and educator in South Africa, his social justice heart is about as strong as it gets.

Features Bishop Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela.
