Separado

**Stop press** Just confirmed that Gruff Rhys and Dyl 'Goch' Jones will be at the Green Man Festival this weekend to talk about Separado!, the documentary they made together about Gruff's long-lost relative. René Griffiths is a poncho-wearing, Welsh-singing troubadour from Patagonia, whose story inspired Rhys to trace the historical links between Wales and the Argentinian badlands where many of his ancestors emigrated in the 19th century. The film is a real charmer which throws spaghetti western, Celtic dance and super 8 into the mix, so if you're at Green Man get down to the film tent! It's showing on Friday at 7:30pm, and full info on the 7inch Friday night lineup is here. The festival has sold out but the film is also showing in plenty of other UK cinemas during the next couple of months, and a DVD is in the works.

PS: Regular Birmingham viewers, please note that the film is back at the Electric from 20-24 August.
