Summer Docs: Searching for Sugarman | The Sag Harbor Express

When Stockholm-based filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul set off for South Africa in 2006 in search of a few good segments for Swedish television, he wasn’t expecting to find a Cinderella story worthy of a feature length documentary.

Yet “Searching for Sugarman” is exactly that. It’s a film about the youthful hopes of an oppressed nation which were embodied in the music of a long-lost musician from a world away. It’s a tale that spans two continents and more than three decades.

And it hinges on nothing short of a resurrection.
