Made in SA film, Searching For Sugar Man, has won the Academy Award for best documentary. The story revolves around two South Africans who set out to discover what happened to their musical hero Rodriguez. He recorded two albums in the 1970’s, but they failed miserably in the US. Unknown to Rodriguez, his musical story continued in South Africa where he became a pop music icon and inspiration for generations.
If you havn’t seen it then best you make a plan to do so. It is well deserving of that Oscar award.
Huge props to all the folks involved and especially to the South Africans who went out to find him and turned his story into such a massive success.
Have a look at the trailer and enjoy the Saffa accents. You’re totally gonna watch it after
Boom! Proudly SA.
