The Sapphires

The Sapphires

This effervescent film tells the true story of three Aboriginal sisters from a mission, and their city-based cousin, who formed a soul band in 1968 that went to Vietnam to entertain the troops, and how this changed their lives.  The journey travelled by these girls is linked with the broader social and political events of this tumultuous period.  The uplifting musical numbers highlight Jessica Mauboy’s talents.
