Another year, another set of movie nights! And for our first film of 2018, we’ve got an Aussie gem (yes, it’s a pun) in celebration of Australia Day.
The Sapphires tells the story of four indigenous Australian women – Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy), Kay (Shari Sebbens) and Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell) – who are discovered by a talent scout (Chris O’Dowd) and form a music group, travelling to Vietnam in 1968 to sing for troops during the war. Based on a stage play, the film premiered at Cannes in 2012 to critical acclaim; it’s filled with heart, humour and great music.
FREE PIZZA will be served in the foyer outside from 5pm, and the film will commence at 6pm. For dietary and catering purposes, please register if you’d like to attend.
