American Interior (2014) Trailer
Trailer for American Interior.
Welsh musician Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) documents his latest musical road trip, retracing the fantastical American exploits of his distant relative, 18th-century explorer John Evans. Setting out in 1792, Evans was searching for a tribe of Welsh-speaking Native Americans rumoured to be descendants of an ancient Welsh prince. Rhys decides, more than 200 years later, to recreate his ancestor’s journey on an Investigative Concert Tour™, a series of gigs he performs accompanied by an acoustic guitar, a PowerPoint presentation and a felt puppet representing Evans. Myth, music and Rhys’ deliciously dry sense of humour combine in this film, part of a unique multimedia project comprising film, book, album and app.
