Sugar Man

Searching for Sugar Man is a documentary film directed by Malik Bendjelloul (who sadly died yesterday), which details the efforts of two Cape Town fans in the late 1990s to find out whether the rumoured death of the American musician known as Rodriguez was true, and, if not, to discover what had become of him. 

Rodriguez's music, which never took off in the United States, had become wildly popular in South Africa, but little was known about him there.
