Time Out says
Searching for Sugarman follows Swedish filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul as he investigates what ever happened to Mexican-American singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez, whose song "Sugarman" ended up becoming a sensation in apartheid-plagued South Africa in the '70s. Bendjelloul decides to track him down, as he vanished from the public eye after that era. See the recent critically acclaimed and audience-favorite documentary for free at Monterey Park's East Los Angeles College (1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez) as part of LACMA's off-site Art + Film Lab. The screening will take place in the school's Performing and Fine Arts Center's recital hall.
