Finding The Secret Song

In Finding The Secret Song, Wilmington filmmaker Ismail Abdus-Salaam explores a very specific moment in singer/songwriter Benjamin Wagner’s, life and career.

Relocated from New York City, untethered from his globe-trotting day job at a major tech company, and approaching a certain age, Wagner initiates a road trip to write and record his groundbreaking tenth album — and finds Graceland, grace, and himself along the way.

The 22-minute documentary premiere will feature performances from local indie pop standout, Sug Daniels, plus an acoustic set by Wagner.

Purchase tickets in advance at Theatre N now. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the post-production of Wagner’s second, feature-length documentary, Friends & Neighbors, due in 2023. Visit to learn more, and support the film.
