I was very excited to hear that The Electric Cinema will be showing Separado! in a few weeks time. I love Super Furry Animals and Gruff Rhys so it was great to see the film at Flatpack earlier this year. I’m glad that I will have the opportunity to see it again on the big screen. The film is a bizarre documentary, in true SFA style, showing lead singer and solo musician Gruff’s trip to South America in order to find a distant relative. The film is also an intriguing history of the Welsh and how communities sprung up over Patagonia in the 19th Century. Seeing the continuing Welsh influence in parts of Argentina was fascinating.
Separado! will be screening from Friday 20 to Thursday 26 August. Check the website for more details.
