A fascinating new documentary chronicles the search for a mysterious folk musician who unknowingly became a rock legend half a world away.

Searching for Sugar Man tells the story of an American singer-songwriter in the early-70s named Rodriguez, who was considered a talented recording artist but somehow disappeared into oblivion.

At the same time, a bootleg copy of his album found its way to South Africa and became the voice of White Resistance in the apartheid-era country, and Rodriguez became a cult legend for years.

Searching for Sugar Man opens in Seattle on August 10th. This is a story you do not want to miss!
