Four women, Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy), Kay (Shari Sebbens) and Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell), are discovered by a talent scout (Chris O'Dowd), and form a music group named The Sapphires. They travel to Vietnam in 1968 to sing for troops during the war. The Sapphires made its world premiere at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and has won numerous awards including the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards for Best Lead Actor (Chris O’Dowd), AACTA Best Lead Actress (Deborah Mailman) & Best Supporting Actress (Jessica Mauboy)
Recently one of the original Sapphires (Lois Peeler) spoke at an Amnesty International screening of this film. After the screening in Mildura we will show a short clip of what she had to say.
