Searching for Sugar Man Saturday at Creekside

Rodriguez—Sugar Man—was an underground U.S. rock ’n’ roll musician in the 1970s.

In this documentary, two South Africans set out to discover what happened to their unlikely musical hero, the mysterious 1970s rock ‘n’ roller, Rodriguez.

Rodriguez was an underground U.S. rock ’n’ roll musician in the 1970s. His albums were critically well-received, but sales bombed, and he faded into obscurity among rumours of a gruesome death.

However, a bootleg copy of his record made its way to South Africa, where his music became a phenomenal success. In a country suppressed by apartheid, his anti-establishment message connected with the people.

When his second album finally gets released on CD in South Africa, two fans take it as a sign and decide to look into the mystery of how Rodriguez died and what happened to all of the profits from his album sales. Searching for Sugar Man is a story of hope and inspiration.

It shows at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9 at Creekside Theatre.
