Malik Bendjelloul's Searching for Sugar Man, the soul-stirring depiction of the life of once-overlooked Detroit troubadour Sixto Rodriguez, won an Oscar last night for best documentary. In light of this achievement, it seems like a good time to link to an interview I conducted with the director and his charming subject back in August 2012.
Kudos to Rodriguez, Bendjelloul, and Light in the Attic Records, the Seattle label whose reissues did much to raise Rodriguez's profile in the '00s.
