Searching For Sugar Man

If you haven't seen the documentary Searching For Sugar Man, do so!  And resist the urge to read anything about the story prior to viewing the film.  That said, I wish to share a quote from the tail-end of the film:

What he's demonstrated very clearly is that you have a choice.  He took all that torment, all that agony, all that confusion and pain, and he transformed it into something beautiful.  He's like a silk worm, you know. You take this raw material and you transform it.  And you come out with something that wasn't there before.  Something beautiful.  Something perhaps transcendent.  Something perhaps eternal. Insofar as he does that, I think he's representative of the human spirit, of what's possible.  That you have a choice.  "And this has been my choice, to give you Sugar Man."  Now have you done that?  Ask yourself.

- Rick Emmerson on his friend Sixto Rodriguez in the documentary Searching For Sugar Man
