Then, Rodriguez is an American folk singer discovered in Detroit in the late 1960s. His music received praise from critics, but sales bombed and he dropped off the scene mysteriously. Filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul captures that story, and how the music of Rodriguez became the soundtrack for justice in South Africa throughout their struggle with apartheid. Searching for Sugar Man is now in theaters. [Broadcast Date: August 6, 2012]
