Welsh cult musician Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) documents his latest musical road trip, retracing the fantastical American journey of his 18th Century relative, the explorer John Evans.
In search of a lost tribe of Welsh-speaking Native Americans, John Evans left Wales for America in 1792 with only $1.75 in his pocket. Alone and without a horse, he walked into the wilderness of the Great Plains of the Wild West and reappeared seven years later as Don Juan Evans. Fiction, fact, fantasy, myth and music documentary collide as Rhys flies like an eagle and howls like a wolf while following in the footsteps of his (extremely) Great uncle. An investigative concert tour and a cross-media project combining music, film, literature and technology.
