Seperado: wild wild welsh

A few of us watched Seperado! at the weekend in the IFI - it's a movie made by Gruff from the Super Furry Animals. It documents his road trip around Argentina as he plays some shows and goes in search of a long lost Welsh cousin. Turns out a load of Welsh people emigrated there in the 1880s and there are whole towns with Welsh names and people speaking Welsh, which is kinda bizarre. It's a pleasure to watch as he drives about in amazing scenery, puts on shows to rooms of polite bemused locals while donning his power ranger helmet and generally acts as amazingly weird as usual. The soundtrack is full a bunch of his solo stuff too. Swoon.

If you are in any way of fan of SFA or Gruff (how can you not be?) I'd highly recommend checking this out.
