International film series: "The Sapphires"
Time: 7:00pm
Location: Olin B Lecture Hall

The spring International Film Series — hosted by the Department of Modern Languages — begins with the film The Sapphires.

Synopsis: 1968 was the year that changed the world. And for four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote mission this is the year that would change their lives forever. Around the globe, there was protest and revolution in the streets. Indigenous Australians finally secured the right to vote. There were drugs and the shock of a brutal assassination. And there was Vietnam. The sisters, Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay are discovered by Dave, a 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 flies 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.

(Australia, 2012, 103 min., Biography/Comedy/Drama/Music, PG-13)
