Searching for Sugar Man
Malik Bendjelloul and Simon Chinn
About the Film:
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.
About Meeting up:
We will meet at Starbucks to socialize before the event.
Please note the No Show Policy:
As always please update your RSVP in advance of the event if your plan has changed. Cancelling less than three hours before an event counts as a "No Show" since it does not provide adequate time to notify the folks on the waiting list. I generally send out my phone number the night before. If an emergency happens, please call me and let me know. Direct communication is very important as it allows the host to make last-minute adjustments for the capped attendance events.
One "No Show" without a call to me and you will not be able to RSVP to my capped attendance events for three months. Three "No Shows" and you will not be able to RSVP to my events.
Let's give everyone who wants to attend the group events the chance. Thank you for your cooperation.
