Film screening of the award-winning 'A Boy Called Sailboat' with the soundtrack performed live by the Grigoryan Brothers
Acclaimed guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoryan have expanded their creative output by crafting and recording the soundtrack to the award-winning movie ‘A Boy Called Sailboat’. This heartwarming movie, written and developed by Cameron Nugent and Andrew Curry was filmed in New Mexico and stars Academy Award® winning actor J.K Simmons 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. 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.
"Slava and Leonard belong in a special category of excellence"
"Guitar playing of uncommon originality and authority"
"Adorable, nearly-perfect modern folktale"
"An astonishingly assured debut narrative film"
