Searching for Sugar Man

Searching for Sugar Man follows two fans from Cape Town as they set out to discover what has become of the musician Sixto Rodriguez who was wildly popular in South Africa but largely unknown in his own country, the United States.

In this excerpt from Malik Bendjelloul’s Academy Award-nominated documentary, a fan looks to Rodriguez’s music for clues on where to find the elusive singer, and his American producer recalls the pain of not finding an audience in the U.S. for the singer’s original albums.
