10 Of The Best Documentary Films about Africa

Written by Mark Rausch


3. Searching for Sugar Man (2012)

An entirely wonderful, charming Oscar-winning documentary, “Searching For Sugar Man” follows two South African fans of Sixto Rodriguez, a little-known U.S. folk singer from Detroit whose songs were bigger than Elvis’s in South Africa. An entire generation of South Africans grew up listening to Rodriguez music, unbeknownst to the artist. From Cape Town to Detroit, this is a very special insight into the power of music and its haunting effects.
