A Boy Called Sailboat

Film Screening with the soundtrack performed live by the Grigoryan Brothers


Thursday 19th October 2023


7.30pm - 9.30pm


Town Hall



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.

90 min film screening with live soundtrack performed live by the Grigoryan Brothers,

followed by a 20 min Q & A with the film’s writer/director Cameron Nugent.

Please note this event was scheduled for Sunday 20/08/2023, however due to an unexpected illness, has been postponed to Thursday 19/10/2023.
