SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN is a film about hope and inspiration, truth vs. illusion, and the resonating power of music.

Star-struck doesn’t even begin to describe our reaction on Monday 22 October, 2012 to meeting not only Stephen “Sugar” Segerman and Craig Bartholomew Strydom, fans of musician Sixto Rodriguez and stars of the documentary Searching for Sugar Man, but also Eva Rodriguez, daughter of the music legend himself.

Searching for Sugar Man, directed by Malik Bendjelloul, follows Segerman’s and Strydom’s journey to unearthing the truth behind the gruesome rumours of Rodriguez’s death, the rediscovery of the living musician, and his subsequent sold-out concerts in South Africa in 1998.

The 101-minute long doccie is currently being shown at Ster-Kinekor Noveau cinemas and features stunning scenery of Cape Town, where Rodriguez performed at the Bellville Velodrome in the late 1990s.
