Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
Musician Gruff Rhys documents his latest musical road trip, retracing the fantastical American journey of his 18th Century relative, the explorer John Evans.

Alone, he walked into the wilderness of the Wild West and reappeared seven years later as Don Juan Evans.
AMERICAN INTERIOR, co-directed by Rhys and Dylan Goch, is an investigate concert tour. Fiction, fact, fantasy, myth and music documentary collide as Rhys flies like an eagle and howls like a wolf, following in the footsteps of his (extremely) Great-uncle.
Johnny Depp pays a call on his friend and hero Ralph Steadman and we take off on a high-spirited, lyrical, raging and soulful journey discovering the life and works of one of Britain’s most important and radical artists.
