‘Roger Waters The Wall’ Schedules DVD/Blu-ray Release
According to a press release, Dec. 1 has been scheduled as the release date for the home version of the film, which is being released on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats, as well as a two-disc special edition Blu-ray that adds footage from Waters' reunion with former Pink Floyd bandmates David Gilmour and Nick Mason during a 2011 performance in London. Fans can also look forward to a Roger Waters The Wall soundtrack, details of which are expected "in the coming weeks."
"I’m glad we have an opportunity to share the film with people on a wider scale," Waters is quoted as saying. "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."
Culled largely from footage filmed during a three-year solo tour that found Waters performing Pink Floyd's The Wall in its entirety, Roger Waters The Wall also offers a behind-the-scenes look at his personal journey between the shows, including a visit to the World War I veteran's cemetery where is grandfather is buried and the beachhead where his father was killed during World War II. For Waters, it's all a reflection of how his relationship with the album has evolved since its release.
"I was determined that it should be less specifically about my predicament and my story and my journey,” he told Ultimate Classic Rock, “and more a general look at what it means to those of us who become victims to what seems to be an insatiable desire by those with the reigns of power in their hands to wage war on others to further whatever their aims might be."
Encore theatrical screenings of Roger Waters The Wall are planned for later this month. For more information, visit the film's website.
