Looking for Sugar Man
The Oscar-winning documentary focuses on Sixto Rodrigues, a Detroit folksinger with a short-lived recording career. Unbeknownst to the singer, he was a major pop icon in South Africa and inspired generations. In the 1990s, a group of fans set out to discover what had happened to the long-lost singer. A trailer for the movie can be seen here.
The documentary tells the moving tale of three Violence Interrupters who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they once employed. A film from director Steve James and bestselling author Alex Kotlowitz, the film depicts the violence within our cities. The documentary is the winner of several awards; information about the film can be found on its official website.
