Talking of modern-day Welsh pop cultural legends, Gruff Rhys’s Patagonian documentary-cum-road movie, Separado!, is currently doing the round of art-house movie theatres. Shamefully I haven’t managed to catch it yet but the trailer is a thing of great beauty, so I’m sure the full-length version will be even better. In the past there have been several documentaries made on the Welsh diaspora to South America but I doubt any of them have been quite as cosmic as Separado!.

Upcoming screenings of Separado! in Wales: Theatr Mwldan, September 25, 27-29; Hay-on-Wye Festival, September 24-26; Aberystwyth Arts Centre, September 25-29; Galeri Caernarfon, October 20; Swansea University, November 2; Theatre Clwyd Cymru, November 4.
