Milan, Bologna hosting star of 'Searching for Sugar Man'03 December, 15:13
Once praised by critics as "better than Dylan", Rodriguez fell into obscurity after the commercial failure of both albums, except in South Africa, where his songs became anthems of cultural rebellion during apartheid. The film documents how only recently did Rodriguez come to know he was a household name in that once-isolated country, even more famous than the Rolling Stones by some accounts. Rodriguez's music has been enjoying a revival since the film's debut, sparking a worldwide tour and high-grossing record sales.
