Synopsis: 

Malik Bendjelloul’s engrossing Academy Award-nominated documentary follows a pair of South African music fans attempting to penetrate the mystery surrounding Rodriguez, a Chicano singer-songwriter from Detroit who made two records in the 1970s, found an unlikely following in South Africa, and then disappeared forever—or so it seemed.
