There will be a table inside the Cinema by the box office reserved for London Documentary Network from 4.30pm for the afternoon and evening so I hope to see you there. I will be helping to run the event but will have time to meet and chat to some of you there.
See you Sunday,
SOUTH AFRICA REVISITED
Two legends of South African music brought to London in two extraordinary documentaries for one night only!
On Sunday 1 July, documentary festival DocHouse presents a double bill of two iconic music films, in an evening devoted to South African musical journeys and the powerful documentaries they inspired. Please see the press release attached for more details.
5pm ‘Searching for Sugarman’ portrays the reclusive American singer Sixto Rodriguez, who commanded one of the largest fan-bases in 1970s South Africa. With his Dylan-esque folk songs of protest and struggle he enjoyed overwhelming success, but then inexplicably disappeared. Wild rumours circulated for decades about his fate, until two men set out to reveal the man behind the myth.

8pm ‘Under African Skies’, charts Paul Simon’s journey to South Africa to record the iconic ‘Graceland’ albumn at the time of the UN’s anti-apartheid cultural boycott. Twenty-five years on, he explores the impact of this choice in an emotionally stirring reunion tour.
