Searching for Sugar Man (Malik Bendjelloul, 2012). The notion is that for decades,
musician and distant audience were unaware of each other – he starved, they
thought he was dead. It wasn’t quite like the myth, but Searching for Sugar Man is
touchingly nostalgic for an era when such myths still had the time and space to
be possible (see also: Salinger).
Run this in a double bill with Only
Lovers Left Alive: the reclusive musician in Detroit’s ruins.
