The real-life search for a singer-songwriter who influenced the Anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa.

South African music journalists and fans search for the mysterious artist Rodriguez, whose two albums challenged the establishment and championed the working class in a time when Apartheid made South Africa a virtual police state. This is an unbelievable story, with strong Detroit ties, and a fabulous soundtrack. Fans of Bob Dylan and Marvin Gaye should check out this documentary about a lost classic of the 1960s. Nominated for the 2012 Oscar for Best Documentary.
