Searching For Sugar Man is in selected cinemas now and will be released on DVD in November. The soundtrack is out now. Read NME’s review of Swedish director Malik Bendjelloul’s film by clicking here.
The film follows the story of Rodriguez, the ‘lost’ artist from Detroit, who, though relatively unknown in the US, became a massive star in South Africa and Australia, but was then rumoured to have died. It won the Special Jury Prize and the Audience Award for best international documentary at the Sundance Film Festival 2012. Watch an exclusive interview with the cast and crew below.
