This year's Academy Award-winning Swedish film in the documentary films selection is set to screen in Alexandria's El-Cabina Centre on Tuesday, 14 May.

Rodriguez was the greatest ’70s US rock icon who never was. His albums were critically well-received, but sales bombed, and he faded away into obscurity among rumours of a gruesome death. However, as fate would have it, a bootleg copy of his record made its way to South Africa, where his music became a phenomenal success. When his second album finally gets released on CD in South Africa, two fans take it as a sign, deciding to look into the mystery of how Rodriguez died and what happened to all of the profits from his album sales. 

The film takes interesting twists and unexpected turns and is guaranteed to leave audiences wowed. It is an emotional rollercoaster throughout.
