Searching for Sugar Man

American musician Sixto Rodriguez disappeared into obscurity in his home country after leaving the music scene in the 1970s. But unbeknownst to him, his albums had become a massive hit in South Africa where it was widely rumoured that he had committed suicide.

In Searching for Sugar Man, two South African mega-fans embark on a quest to find out what really happened to Rodriguez and are shocked by what they discover. Rodriguez is indeed alive and completely oblivious to his fame abroad. As a result of this documentary, his music career has been unexpectedly revived.
