Searching for Sugar Man

Just more than a year ago, my husband and I were at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah for the première of Searching for Sugar Man... I blogged about it here and here. The documentary (directed by Malik Bendjelloul) is based on my husband, Craig Bartholomew-Strydom's 1997 article about 'finding' musician Sixto Rodriguez. So much has happened since that snowy January. The film has just won the Oscar for Best Documentary at the Academy Awards. We are beside ourselves...

And here is Craig holding the majestic statuette. "Heavy as a dumbbell" is how he described it! What a whirlwind...

Read an amusing Baltimore Sun article about his experience here...


  1. Many congratulations to your husband!

  2. seriously, we knew it was KILLING you not to be in LA with Craig. And we hoped that you could hear all of your friends in b-more cheering for him!
