Cape Town – Not even the cold weather could keep the A-listers away from the Cape Town premiere of Nobody’s Died Laughing on Monday night.
The film is a theatrical-action-documentary that celebrates the life and work of performing artist and activist Pieter-Dirk Uys.
In Nobody’s Died Laughing a film crew tries to keep up with one of the hardest working artists in South Africa on a journey from Cape Town, Johannesburg, Grahamstown, Stellenbosch to London, Berlin and his home in Darling.
The film takes a closer look at the man behind all the famous characters, the humanitarian and his educational AIDS awareness work, for which he has received international acclaim.
