How is it possible that a musician named Rodriguez could bomb with two albums in the U.S., disappear into obscurity for years and then be unknowingly resurrected as a successful, inspirational hero in totally different country? Searching for Sugar Man tells the uplifting, almost unbelievable true mystery of Rodriguez, a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about him. From the producer of the Oscar-winning Man on Wire, Searching for Sugar Man is that rare film which connects with audiences and critics alike on an extraordinarily emotional level. Winner two awards at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, including the Audience Award, director Malik Bendjelloul's documentary is a film about hope, inspiration and the resonating power of music. Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Feature. Official Web Site
