This inspiring documentary shook up last year’s festival circuit and won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. A tribute to the power of music and amateur detective work, the film answering the question, What Ever Happened to Sixto Rodriguez? 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.
