A special screening/concert of the award-winning movie 'A Boy Called Sailboat' featuring Australia’s finest guitar duo, the Grigoryan Brothers, performing live the haunting soundtrack they created and arranged for the movie.

This simple yet moving film is the story of a devout Hispanic family discovering fresh hope in their extraordinary son Sailboat, when a loving personal gesture awakens a global desire. Armed with a “little guitar” and shadowed by an unblinking sidekick, Sailboat leads an offbeat cast into the miraculous story of the greatest secret never told – until now.

The performance will be followed by a 20 minute Q & A with the film’s director/screenwriter Cameron Nugent.
