Malik Bendjelloul's cause of death has been revealed.
The Oscar-winning director of Searching for Sugar Man committed suicide, the Swedish filmmaker's brother Johar Bendjelloul confirmed to Swedish media. "I can confirm that it was suicide and that he had been depressed for a short period of time," Bendjelloul's brother told tabloid Aftonbladet (via the Daily Mail)."Life is not always so easy...It's the worst. I don't know how to handle it."
Bendjelloul was only 36 when he took his own life this week.
