“Roger Waters. The Wall”, the film-event against war

On 29th September, the new antiwar film “Roger Waters. The Wall” about the tour of Pink Floyd’s monumental record, will be released in cinemas.

“Roger Waters. The Wall”, a film-event on the live tour of Pink Floyd’s monumental album, which was presented last year at the Toronto International Film Festival, will be released on 29th September in cinemas across the world. 36 years after its release, “The Wall” is still considered a masterpiece in the history of rock with over 30 million copies sold, a number of reissues and a film reproduction in 1982 directed by Oscar winner Alan Parker.

 

The extreme modernity of this album and the pacifist message with which it successively identified itself, has been glorified by Roger Waters in more than two hundred concerts between 2010 and 2013. The images and sounds of that global tour are finally being brought to the big screen in ultra-high-definition (4K) and in Dolby Atmos, a cutting-edge surround sound technology.

 

“Roger Waters. The Wall” is a testimony of those extraordinary concerts, but also an emotional road movie where Waters deals with the past, digs into his personal history to build an immortal parable on war, the sense of loss, love and life. Scarred by the death in war of his granfather (First World War) and his father (during the Anzio landing in 1944), the composer, singer and bass player as well as Pink Floyd’s leader from 1965 up to 1985 – when he started his solo career – produced and co-directed the film along with creative director of the tour Sean Evans to denounce out loud the horrors of war.

“With your help, this coming 29th September will be the perfect way to remember not just our loved ones but the other guys loved ones — fallen, living and as yet unborn”, said Waters. The movie will be followed by a conversation between Roger Waters and Nick Mason, who, for the first time since the break-up of the band, will answer some selected questions that fans sent to the artist’s official website.
