Darklight: Gruff Rhys & the Irish Premiere of his documentary Separado! – IFI, Dublin

Synth Eastwood in association with Darklight 2010 present:
Gruff Rhys & the Irish Premiere of his documentary Separado!
(Followed by a Q&A with both Gruff & and Director Dylan Jones)
Saturday 30th October 2010, IFI Cinema, Dublin.

Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals, Neon Neon) will attend Darklight 2010 to premiere his new documentary Seperado!

The documentary is a psychedelic western musical in which Gruff takes us on a pan continental road trip in search of his long lost Patagonian uncle, the poncho wearing guitarist Rene Griffiths.

Director Dylan “Goch” Jones follows Gruff Rhys on a tour that takes in the theatres, nightclubs and desert teahouses of Wales, Brazil and the Argentine Andes as he discovers what became of his family, the Welsh Diaspora and its musical legacy.

Gruff’s music, his quietly relentless work ethic and the constantly inventive visual identity tied to each project he is involved in are the key reasons why Synth Eastwood have invited Gruff to Darklight 2010. There are too many amazing videos, record covers, ideas, stage designs, notions, props and stunts to mention here but the infectious sense of creativity, occasion and fun is always evident in everything Gruff produces.
