searching-for-sugarmanTwo South Africans search for their musical hero, Rodriguez. Starring Stephen ‘Sugar’ Segerman, Dennis Coffey, Mike Theodore, Rodriguez,  Craig Bartholomew Strydom, Malik Bendjelloul.

In Searching for Sugar Man, a couple of South Africans search for their favorite musician who seems to have fallen off the face of the earth. The movie is shot on Super 8 film giving it that nostalgic look and feel. A passion project by the filmmakers, it has a unique, stylized feel which I loved, but I got the sense that they already knew how things would end even as they sought out Rodriguez. It was like he was waiting in the wings to be found. Still, it was a wonderful experience, and this documentary is worth a watch.
