Searching for Sugar Man


Join Fairfield Theatre Company & WPKN 89.5 FM for the screening of the Academy Award Winning documentary film “Searching for Sugar Man”, April 29th. The film tells the incredible true story of Rodriguez, the greatest ’70s rock icon who never was. He was discovered in a Detroit bar in the late ’60s by two celebrated producers who were struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics. They recorded an album which they believed would secure his reputation as the greatest recording artist of his generation.

In fact, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and over the next two decades he became a phantasmic phenomenon. The film follows the story of two South African fans who set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation leads them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez.
