I just watched something that was so interesting I just have to make a small attempt to make someone else watch it too. Searching for Sugarman is a swedish documentary about the searching for a musican/singer who recorded three albums in the 60’s and toured a little in the US, but pretty soon was forgotten and also supposed dead. The thing was that in the same time he was, without knowing it, really popular in South Africa where noone knew who he was. Some people there decided to search after the man behind the music which resualted in this documentary.  It’s a pretty short and by very small fundings made (Some of it is even filmed with an iphone!) documentary but, as I’ve already said, very interesting story. It’s made by Malik Bendjelloul and has gotten a lot of awards, for example an Oscar for best documentary. See it!
