A Boy Called Sailboat - The Grigoryan Brothers Live (PG)

Film Screening with the soundtrack performed live by the Grigoryan Brothers

Acclaimed guitarists Slava & Leonard Grigoryan have 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 and stars Academy Award® winning actor J.K Simmons, Noel G, Elizabeth De Razzo, Jake Busey, Lew Temple and Julian Atocani Sanchez in the title role.

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 to the movie and provides an opportunity for audiences to hear the Grigoryan Brothers like never before.

“… a delightfully original film … “ – Rod Yates, Sydney Morning Herald
“Adorable, nearly-perfect modern folktale …” – Roger Moore, Movie Nation
“An astonishingly assured debut narrative film …” – Debora Krieger, MovieJawn
“…surely, the most impressive calling-card film in recent memory.” – Simon Foster, Screen Space
