Roger Waters Bringing New ‘Wall’ Movie to Theaters

'Roger Waters The Wall'
Rue 21 Productions

After three years of touring behind his version of the Pink Floyd classic ‘The Wall,’ Roger Waters is ready to bring the production to movie theaters.

Co-directed by Waters and Sean Evans, the new film — titled simply ‘Roger Waters The Wall’ — is scheduled to make its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 6, with repeat screenings planned for Sept. 7 and 14.

Promising an “immersive experience” for viewers and a “rib-rattling, sonically stupendous piece of filmmaking,” it collects footage from three cities (and two continents) on the tour, and also includes documentary-style footage that follows Waters on pilgrimages to the World War I cemetery where is grandfather is buried, as well as to the Anzio Beachhead, where his father’s name is among the many inscribed on plaques honoring the WWII veterans who died in the long 1944 battle that took place there.

“Ever since ‘The Wall’ was released, it has become one of the classic rock albums of all time,” said TIFF Director and CEO Piers Handling in a press release. “Its popularity continues and its message is still timely. Deeply affected by his father’s and grandfather’s deaths in the two world wars, Roger Waters has crafted a plea to tear down the walls that lead to misunderstandings and wars. This powerful performance film allows Roger to explore what ‘The Wall’ still means to him as he performs it in front of tens of thousands of fans, and visits more personal places that resonate with meaning on the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.”
