Cinema Event: "THE SAPPHIRES" at GoMA (Gallery of Modern Art)

"THE SAPPHIRES"

1968 was the year that changed the world. And for four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote mission, this was the year that would change their lives forever. Around the globe, there was protest and revolution in the streets. Aboriginal Australians finally secured the right to vote. There were drugs and flower power, and there was Vietnam. The sisters, Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay are discovered by Dave, an Irish talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm, but a great knowledge of soul music. Billed as Australia's answer to 'The Supremes', Dave secures the sisters their first true gig, and flys them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops. Based on a true story, THE SAPPHIRES is a triumphant celebration of youthful emotion, family and music.

    "The Sapphires" is a shining example of Australian cinema at its best! A must-see film!

    There seems to be a lot of people going (assuming they weren't all rsvp'd by the organizer). Just wondering if there is any risk of there not being seats available?

      Hi Jesse. I suspect that most people will be deterred by the weather, so I'm quite confident that there will be plenty of seats. Also, it's quite a big cinema. Hope to see you there tonite! AJ

    Depending on the weather, is anyone interested in meeting a bit earlier before the movie tomorrow for a bite to eat? Please email me, or text/call me on[masked] 653. Thanks, AJ

    I have already seen this once and I thought it was a brilliant showcase of Australian acting and the Australian movie industry assuming it was made in Australia. Looking forward to it.

    I suggest that half an hour for getting 'a bit for eat' before the movie is not adequent (time allocated)!

    Hello, a few people said they are shy about being the first to RSVP, so AJ is just trying out a new system to mark people as going to make it more comfortable for people. It will also hopefully be a way of getting more people coming a long to watch some great films. Of course if you can't make it, you can't make. Hope that helped.
