Separado! the debut feature film by Welsh music legend Gruff Rhys [Super Furry Animals] hits UK cinemas this summer.
The film, a psychedelic road trip documenting the Welsh pop star's quest to locate his 'long-lost, poncho-wearing, guitar-playing Patagonian uncle', is released in the UK on 30 July.
A blend of magical realist road movie, personal quest and social history, Separado! is a freewheeling adventure which follows Rhys through South America performing solo concerts, tracing the Welsh community's movements, and searching for his uncle, a 1970s Argentine pop star called Rene Griffiths, who would arrive on stage on a horse and sing in Welsh.
Gruff Rhys and co-director Dylan Goch will appearing at selected screenings including the BFI Southbank on August 1st which will feature both a Q&A and a live performance by Gruff and the Brazilian cult troubadour and part-time TV repair man Tony Da Gatorra, performing tracks from their recent collaboration "The Terror of Cosmic Loneliness".
