I'm no expert on Python or REST but the example

	>>> url = 'http://httpbin.org/post'
	>>> files = {'file': open('report.xls', 'rb')}

	>>> r = requests.post(url, files=files)
	>>> r.text
         ...

seems quite straightforward so I would suggest substituting your URL for 
'http://httpbin.org' and your file name (possibly with full pathname) 
for 'report.xls'.

Give it a try and report back...
