Title: Searching for Sugar Man
By: Malik Bendjelloul
Sugar Man, which won the 2013 Academy Award for Best Documentary, is the very sweet, true story of an American Music Legend that wasn't--and now, 40 years later, is. In 1970, Sixto Rodriguez, an American musician of Mexican and Native American heritage living in Detroit, released an album of pop/folk/rock songs, some reminiscent of Bob Dylan, others of Cat Stevens. It sold about as many copies as he had family members...at least, in this country. To tell any more of the story might take away some of the fun of watching and discovering for yourself a truly fascinating and inspiring tale.
See it with friends. You will be touched by Rodriguez, his story, and his music.
