Release Notes


Official Website


This rousing documentary looks at the South African cult that built up around Rodriguez, a long-forgotten American singer-songwriter from the seventies who was believed to be dead, and how a couple of ardent fans decided to track down what happened to him. It plays like a mystery-adventure, with touching pit stops into the counterculture, the music industry, as well as the decaying city of Detroit.
