Now, for the first time, the release will be available on DVD, 2-disc Blu-ray, and Digital HD starting 16th November, 2015 and is a must-own release for 2015.

Roger Waters said, “I’m glad that we have an opportunity to share the film with people on a wider scale. It has had a deep effect on my life; and I’m not the only one. This release provides an opportunity to remember all of our fallen loved ones.”

A Tour of Epic Proportions

Roger Waters The Wall was shot during ‘The Wall Live’ sold out 2010-13 world tour.   Seen by over 4 million fans at 219 shows over a period of three years, the show was the highest grossing tour by any solo artist in history.  The film, shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos, features never-before-seen concert footage from this breathtaking tour and includes the hits ‘Another Brick in the Wall Part 2’, ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘Run Like Hell.’

A Pilgrimage to address the past

Beyond the music, the film follows Roger Waters as he embarks on a deeply personal pilgrimage and reflects on the impact of war with his own family. Woven throughout the film, Waters travels to France to the site where his grandfather is buried, and Italy to a memorial for his father – both lost to war. The journey offers a revealing, candid portrait of a man who is passionately and unapologetically anti-war.

Promotional Words About The Film

Fans of Roger Waters and Pink Floyd’s monumental The Wall, get ready. This immersive experience of Waters’s The Wall Live tour, shot in three cities across two continents, is a rib-rattling, sonically stupendous piece of filmmaking. With its 500-foot set, which is gradually built throughout the show into the famed wall, the ambitious and immensely successful concert production features one of the most iconic pieces of extended imagination that rock ‘n’ roll ever produced, and will remind many of the sheer ambition and scope of music in the 1970s, the era in which it was first created.

Waters, from whose head the original Wall emerged, has, along with co-director Sean Evans, made a film that captures his original vision completely. Sumptuously shot so as not to miss anything the show had to offer, Roger Waters The Wall is also beautifully mixed so that these live renditions of the album’s many anthems sound crystal-clear and vibrantly present.

But the film, like the piece of music on which it is based, is also drenched in Waters’s politics and memories. Scarred by the fact that his father was killed in action in Italy in 1944, when Roger was not yet six months old, his work is a plea for peace and understanding — as “walls” create fear, misunderstanding, and often lead to war and death. Roger Waters The Wall includes a highly personal and moving journey through France and Italy as Waters visits the WWI cemetery in which his grandfather, killed in 1916, is buried, and the monument near the Anzio beaches on which his father’s name is inscribed. On the hundredth anniversary of the First World War’s outbreak, this film shows that art so often springs from memory — and we can never forget.
