At Sunday’s British Academy Film Awards, Sweden’s “Searching for Sugar Man” won the award for Best Documentary.

Directed by Malik Bendjelloul, the film details the hunt for the singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriquez, whose two albums were massive hits and considered anti-apartheid anthems in South Africa, while he lived in obscurity in Detroit.

The film has also been nominated in the Best Documentary class for the American Oscars.
