Episode Info:

This week on Movietime's Summer series we look back at one of the big events for Australian cinema in 2012, The Sapphires. Adapted by Tony Briggs from his own hit musical, it's a film about four young Aboriginal women (Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy, Shari Sebbens, Miranda Tapsell) who form a soul group under the guidance of an unlikely Irish impresario (Chris O'Dowd) to tour Vietnam and entertain the troops. The story was inspired by the experiences of Briggs' mother and aunties who toured Victoria in a similar group, and in the case of his mother and one aunt, also travelled to Vietnam as entertainers. In this panel hosted by Jason Di Rosso and recorded at the 2012 Melbourne International Film Festival, we’ll hear from Tony Briggs, his mother Lauren Robinson, his aunt Lois Peeler, director Wayne Blair and producers Rosemary Blight and Kylie du Fresne.
