This Oscar winner and Sundance Festival winner tells the fascinating story of rock musician Sixto Rodriguez. After his debut 1970 album fizzled, the singer disappeared, but a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and over the ensuing decades he became a cultural phenomenon in a land he'd never visited. The tale then takes a twist as two South African fans set out to find out what really happened to their hero. (Rated PG-13) Admission is $3 for the general public, $2 for ISU staff, or free for ISU students with Bengal ID or summer music camp attendees.
