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.
