They recorded an album that they believed was going to secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. Despite overwhelming critical acclaim, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide.
But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, it became a phenomenon.
Two South African fans then set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation led them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez. This is a film about hope, inspiration and the resonating power of music.

I absolutely enjoyed the documentary (it brought back so many memories growing up) & it makes me really proud to be a south African!
Effortless purchase using iPhone via the Kalahari mobi Site and prompt delivery (within 2 days).
I love the story of Rodriquez (even though it's so sad actually that he never knew what he meant over here)...I was just not amazed by the way it was told in the film.
This is a must-see documentary for every South Africa who grew up in the 70s and 80s.
a memorable DVD worth having
Great movie. Hope it gets the oscar!
Thoroughly enjoyed this DVD, as did the rest of the family and all who have viewed it. What an amazing story! What an amazing man!
Well produced documentary. As a great fan of Rodriquez and his music I was filled with mixed emotions while watching it. All fans must watch it and take the message to heart. Well done to all involved, great product from South Africa that is now spreading world wide.
One of the most incredible stories around today. It brought tears to my eyes.
What an incredible story! What a humble man. We can all learn from Rodrigues..........
Brilliant documentary, very interesting, a trip down memory lane in terms of the extensive 70's & 80's SA TV footage! A must for any Rodriguez fan!
I watched the movie 3 times and have ordered the DVD. I have never done this for any other movie. This story could have been a fairy tale, but is true. Thank you Rodriguez, for your beautiful music, but thank you even more for putting this gentle face to poverty and reminding us that the important thing is what is inside of us, not what our surroundings look like. I am so glad the man they found was you.
all went well and product perfect
Worth every cent spent on it.
This is a small but significant insight into the man and musical legend, Sixto Rodriguez.
What an awesome man and what an inspiring story - a must see even for non-fans :-)
Brilliant! Sure to become a classic just like his music. Must see.
It was absolutely fantastic and very enlightening
I recommend the purchase of this movie/doccy to anybody who has experienced Rodriguez's music at any point in their life, and even more so to anybody going to his concerts in Feb - excellent purchase, and excellent insight into a truly humble artist!
Fabulous documentary about a really unassuming and simple genius who makes the most fabulous music.
A big Rodrigues fan
I have been blown away by Kalahari's customer service. There was a problem with my previous purchase. They contacted me by phone the day following my logging the complaint and replaced the item almost immediately.
This is a wonderful story about a man not being appreciated between his own people, but place him somewhere else and he is a hero.
Recently saw on the big screen, so impressed that decided to purchase the DVD which we have watched twice already. Excellent story, worth watching a few times as there is so much to observe with regard to this fascinating story.
Best documentary I've seen!
Although It took a lot longer to arrive than I expected , I am very happy to now own it . I had already seen it on cinema release but am happy to watch it at home . Fantastic movie .
A very good production on an ikon for many South Africans, big question marks on the integrity of some of the record company individuals.
Loved! Loved! Loved!
Brilliant DVD. Even people who know nothing about Rodriguez will be bound to listen to his music after seeing this DVD.
I saw this documentary on the big screen. Any music lover should have this in their collection of goodies. I wanted to give this movie to friends and family for xmas but it seems as though kalahari has delayed it's arrival time (new date is 27th December 2012). I am holding thumbs that it gets here sooner. Come on Kalahari. Other than a product delivery delay I would fully recommend this film.
