GROUNDBREAKING CONCERT FILM BROUGHT TO CINEMA SCREENS WORLDWIDE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON 29 SEPTEMBER
Roger Waters, the creative genius behind musical pioneers Pink Floyd, in association with Picturehouse Entertainment and Fathom Events, is set to bring his groundbreaking masterpiece, Roger Waters – The Wall, to Event cinemas across Australia as well as cinemas around the world on Tuesday September 29.
‘The Wall Live’ – the biggest worldwide tour by any solo artist in history – now comes to Event Cinemas as a groundbreaking concert film, written and directed by Roger Waters and Sean Evans. Described by critics as “nothing short of breath-taking” and “visually magnificent,” Roger Waters -The Wall had its premiere at last year’s Toronto Film Festival. The film 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 event on Tuesday September 29 also features The Simple Facts; an exclusive in-conversation with Roger Waters and Nick Mason, where the Pink Floyd rhythm section will reunite over the breaking of bread and the answering of questions sent in by fans.
Roger Waters -The Wall was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters’ sold-out 2010-2013 ‘The Wall Live’ tour, seen by over 4 million fans worldwide, featuring never before seen concert footage from this breathtaking tour, including the hits Another Brick in the Wall Part 2, Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell.
Beyond the outstanding music, Waters reflects 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, ”I hope these worldwide screenings this coming 29th September will be a good opportunity to remember, not just our fallen loved ones, but all the other guys fallen loved ones. Ashes and diamonds foe and friend we were all equal in the end.”
Roger Waters – The Wall will have an unprecedented event cinema release across the world at 8pm local time on Tuesday 29 September. Tickets go on sale on Friday 19 June and are available at evetncinemas.com.au or at the box office.
