Grigoryan Brothers: A Boy Called Sailboat

Presented By: Lighthouse Theatre & RAZ Music

Watch this heart-warming movie, written & developed by Melbourne-based creatives Cameron Nugent & Andrew Curry, while listening to Slava & Leonard Grigoryan play the soundtrack live.

Starring Academy Award® winning actor J.K Simmons, Noel G, Elizabeth De Razzo, Jake Busey, Lew Temple & Julian Atocani Sanchez, Sailboat brings love & hope to a family who have forged a simple but proud life in the drought-ridden Deep South.

One afternoon Sailboat brings home a “little guitar”, from this moment, Sailboat and his little guitar are inseparable. When his ill grandmother requests that 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 crucial element of the movie and provides an opportunity for audiences to hear the Grigoryan Brothers like never before.

Slava & Leonard Grigoryan are justifiably regarded as Australia’s finest classical guitarists with a repertoire spanning centuries, continents and genres, amazing telepathy, and the ability to draw emotion from every note.

Q & A immediately after with the film’s writer/director/editor Cameron Nugent.
