A Boy Called Sailboat - with the Grigoryan Brothers
This is a film screening and live performance by the Grigoryan Brothers.
Acclaimed guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoryan have achieved dizzying heights of success, both in Australia and abroad. The brothers have recently expanded their creative output by crafting and recording the soundtrack to the award-winning movie A Boy Called Sailboat. This heart-warming movie, written and developed by Melbourne-based creative team Cameron Nugent and Andrew Curry was filmed in New Mexico.
Sailboat brings love and hope to a family who have forged a simple but proud life in the drought-ridden Deep South. One afternoon he brings home a little guitar. From this moment, Sailboat and his little guitar are inseparable, and when his ill grandmother requests he write a song for her, Sailboat meanders through adversity to deliver the unimaginable – the greatest song ever written.
The Latin-themed soundtrack is a key element of the movie and provides an opportunity for audiences to hear the Grigoryan Brothers like never before.
With a repertoire spanning centuries, continents and genres, amazing telepathy and the ability to draw emotion from every note, Slava and Leonard Grigoryan are justifiably regarded as Australia’s finest classical guitarists.
All tickets include an invitation to join the after-performance for coffee and cake to Celebrate the Birthday.
