Winner of the World Cinema Audience Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, this engaging documentary follows the improbable-but-true story of US soul dude Rodriguez. In early-'70s Detroit, the somewhat reclusive singer-songwriter was touted as the next big thing. Former Motown boss Clarence Avant signed him and released two albums, but despite good reviews, Rodriguez failed to make the US charts. Further from home, his style struck a chord: in Apartheid-era South Africa he was 'bigger than Elvis', while Australian audiences kept him on the album charts for 55 straight weeks. Stories about the elusive singer abounded - he died onstage, he overdosed - but years later, in the Internet age, two dedicated fans decide to track him down. The story that emerges, told against the background of Rodriguez's standout music, is unbelievably heart-warming.
