Roger Waters The Wall To Get Event Cinema Release
Pink Floyd fans get ready – ROGER WATERS THE WALL is heading for a cinema near you.
The exciting news came today with an announcement from Picturehouse Entertainment and Fathom Events that they have acquired both international and US rights to the film, which is written and directed by Roger Waters and Sean Evans.
Featuring an exclusive “in conversation” with Roger Waters, this unprecedented event cinema release across the world at 7.30 pm local time on Tuesday September 29 this year. More information and tickets will be available this summer.
ROGER WATERS THE WALL, which had its World Premiere at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, is an event film that unfolds on many levels – as an immersive concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album, a road movie of Waters’ reckoning with the past and as a stirring anti-war film, highlighting the human cost of conflict.
The concert portion of the film was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters’ sold-out 2010-2013 “The Wall Live” tour, seen by over 1.5 million fans across North America, 1 million fans across Latin and Central America and 1 million fans across Europe- over 4 million fans worldwide, and the biggest worldwide tour by a solo artist, ever.
A Deeply Personal Pilgrimage
Beyond the outstanding music, Waters continues to reflect on the impact of war on his own family as he embarks on a deeply personal pilgrimage. Woven throughout the film, the journey offers a revealing, candid portrait of a man who has been through enough, and lived in the world long enough, to be passionately and unapologetically anti-war.
Roger Waters said, “We were a big family on the road, 189 of us, give or take the odd Snoozy Walrus. We were happy by and large and I am really happy to welcome everyone at Fathom and Picturehouse aboard, I know, I know, mixing metaphors. Where was I? Oh yeah, 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.”
