In the early 1970s, Sixto Rodriguez was a Detroit folksinger who had a short-lived recording career with only two well received but non-selling albums. Unknown to Rodriguez, his musical story continued in South Africa where he became a pop music icon and inspiration for generations. Long rumored there to be dead by suicide, a few fans in the 1990s decided to seek out the truth of their hero's fate. What follows is a bizarrely heartening story in which they found far more in their quest than they ever hoped, while a Detroit construction laborer discovered that his lost artistic dreams came true after all.

Een verhaal over hoop, inspiratie en de klinkende kracht van muziek. Rodriguez was het grootste jaren zeventig rockicoon in de Verenigde Staten... die dat nooit was. Zijn albums werden gelauwerd, maar de verkoop bleef er ver bij achter. Hij verdween in de obscuriteit, omgeven door geruchten over een gruwelijke dood. Een illegale kopie van één van zijn platen kwam echter in Zuid-Afrika terecht en daar werd zijn muziek een fenomenaal succes. In het land dat indertijd geplaagd werd door de apartheid, werd zijn muziek door de onderdrukte bevolking massaal omarmd.

Sixto Rodriguez had the potential to be the greatest '70s US rock icon. After being hailed the top recording artist of his generation, he completely disappeared off the map. Here, two South African fans set out to find out what really happened to their hero. During their search, they discover truths more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist.

Critic Consensus :A fascinating portrait of a forgotten musical pioneer, Searching for Sugar Man is by turns informative and mysterious.
