Malik Bendjelloul. United Kingdom, Sweden. 2012. Original language, Spanish subtitles. 83'.

For the third consecutive year, the In-Edit music documentary festival is part of Primavera Sound's complementary programming. In-Edit, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012, provides a great way to experience music from a cinematic perspective. The schedule starts with 'Searching for Sugar Man', 2013 Oscar winner for Best Documentary and the In-Edit 2012 award-winner for Best International Music Documentary. It tells the story of Rodríguez, the Hispanic Dylan, who records two '60s folk-rock protest albums and then vanishes when his songs hit No. 1 in South Africa. No one seems to know what's happened to him, or whether he's even still alive. Detectives and fans come together to solve the mystery, and the result is more thrilling than an adventure film.
