Searching for Sugar Man

Fancy watching a Swedish Oscar-winner tonight?

As part of the Storyville season, BBC Four will show Searching for Sugar Man tonight at 9pm. This has been a hit worldwide and was awarded the 2013 Oscar for Best documentary – Sweden’s first Oscar since Fanny and Alexander in 1984. It also won a BAFTA and a Guldbagge.

The film has gained more publicity for tragic reasons recently due to filmmaker Malik  Bendjelloul’s death -http://bigstory.ap.org/article/searching-sugarman-director-dies-36. So sad that so much more attention had to come from such tragic events and we won’t get to watch any more films from this young director.

Enjoy the film tonight and appreciate Bendelloul’s work, and the amazing story of Rodriguez.
