Documentary

Two South Africans set out to determine whether the rumoured death of ’70s folk singer Rodriguez is true and, if not, what became of him. When they find he’s alive – and living in poverty in the US – they decide to bring him to SA, the only country where his music received the recognition it deserved.

It’s easy to see why this has been the hit documentary of the year internationally: it’s an engrossing tale of a talented man who, despite everything, doesn’t have a bitter bone in his body. It will bring a lump to your throat – and reawaken your love of Rodriguez’s music.
