SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN

This inspiring documentary shook up this year's Sundance Film Festival, winning the World Cinema Award. It's a tribute to the power of music and amateur detective work, answering the question, What Ever Happened to Sixto Rodriguez? A casualty of the American music industry, Rodriquez's spare melodies and pungent lyrics were compared to Bob Dylan's. But his albums failed in the U.S., and he was rumored dead from a savage on-stage suicide. However, his music spoke to the South African anti-apartheid movement, and a search for his whereabouts began.
