Recorded on the 6th August 2012 at The Crown Metropol Perth – accessreel.com sits down with the Director of The Sapphires Wayne Blair
The Sapphires is an inspirational tale set in the heady days of the late ’60s about a quartet of young, talented singers from a remote Aboriginal mission, discovered and guided by a kind-hearted, soul-loving manager. Plucked from obscurity, the four spirited women with powerhouse voices — called The Sapphires — are given the opportunity to entertain American troops in Vietnam. Catapulted onto the world stage as Australia’s answer to the Supremes, their journey of discovery offers them not only the chance to show off their musical skills, but find love and togetherness, experience loss and grow as women.
The Sapphires hits Australian Cinemas on the 9th of August – You can watch the full trailer here. Click here to watch the interview on Youtube.
