Acclaimed South African filmmaker Stefan Enslin's inspirational film, Against All Odds: the Alwyn Uys story has been nominated for a National Film & TV Award (NFTA) for Best Documentary and we need YOU to vote please! 


Against All Odds: The Alwyn Uys Story shows that while life can take some unexpected turns, they can lead to something incredible. In the film, Stefan shares the story of Alwyn Uys, whose dreams of one day playing for the Springboks were shattered following a car accident, which left him paralysed. To dream new dreams took courage and determination, but ultimately led to Alwyn becoming the first paraplegic to swim from Robben Island to Eden on the Bay – a 7 km swim, with the cold temperatures of the Atlantic Ocean being life threatening to Alwyn.  


With a 25-year history, the National Film Academy is a global leader in film and TV education. It has 7.5 million members worldwide and organises prestigious awards like the National Film Awards UK, National Film & TV Awards USA, and National Reality Television Awards and they are bringing it to South Africa in 2023!
