Searching for Sugar Man follows the short but complicated career of the musician Rodriguez, a political folk singer from Detroit. Rodriguez recorded two albums in 1970 and 1971 that were commercial disasters. Due to their failure, he gave up his life as a musician. However, bootleg copies of his music found their way out of North America and into the hands of counter-culture youth, from South Africa to Australia, who were looking for a soundtrack to accompany their “revolutions”. Without realizing it, Rodriguez quickly reached superstardom overseas. In the meantime, he had disappeared, and no one knew his location until a mysterious story ran in the media about his apparent suicide. It wasn’t until a South African journalist decided to do a follow-up story on Rodriguez 30 years later that he accidentally stumbled across a man who appears to be Rodriguez, alive and well but living in poverty in Detroit, Michigan. Only putting this man back on stage to his legion of fans would be the true test... Robin Smith, Hot Docs
