by markus | News

WGOT and the CMC will host a screening of “Searching for Sugarman” on Monday, August 19 at 7:00 at the Civic Media Center, 433 South Main St.

“Searching for Sugar Man” is a Swedish-British documentary film directed by Malik Bendjelloul, which details the efforts of two Cape Town fans in the late 1990s, Stephen ‘Sugar’ Segerman and Craig Bartholomew Strydom, to find out whether the rumored death of American musician Sixto Rodriguez was true, and, if not, to discover what had become of him. Rodriguez’s music, which never took off in the United States, had become wildly popular in South Africa, but little was known about him there.

The film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 85th Academy Awards.
