Screening of award-winning film 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.

Short Review


Technical Information

Technical Rating:
Touring Party:
Bump-in Time:
Bump-out Time:


The production travels with its own lights to illuminate the Grigoryan Brothers but only enough so the audience can see them without interfering with the projection. Otherwise no lighting is required


The production travels with its own sound system which is used to amplify the Grigoryan Brothers. No tech is required for this as they control the PA themselves.


All that is required for this production is a screen for projection, a projector and PA capable of amplifying the movie dialogue. The Grigoryan Brothers are seated in front and to the side of the screen so as not to distract from the movie .
