It features state-of-the-art visual production and breath-taking sound in this unmissable cinema event. In the movie Waters through visuals, depicts and addresses issues including conflict, the migrant crisis, civil rights and politics.
Filmed in Amsterdam on the European leg of his 2017 – 2018 Us + Them tour which saw Waters perform to over two million people worldwide, the film features songs from his legendary Pink Floyd albums (The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here) and from his last album, Is This The Life We Really Want? Waters collaborates once more with Sean Evans, visionary director of the highly acclaimed movie, Roger Waters The Wall, to deliver this creatively pioneering film that inspires with its powerful music and message of human rights, liberty and love.
Roger Waters one of the reasons for Pink Floyd’s popularity
Roger Waters is one of the reasons Pink Floyd is as famous as they are today, he along with David Gilmour are the driving forces behind albums such as ‘Dark Side of the Moon’, ‘Wish You Were Here’, and ‘The Wall’. In the wake of Syd Barrett’s departure, Waters emerged as a formidable songwriter, but it’s this stretch of ’70s albums — each one is as brilliantly written and produced as the last. Every album had a distinctive, characteristic voice that set them apart from the mainstream bands at the time and following his (Waters) eventual departure from Floyd in 1985, he continued to create new works in this vein (notably, 1992’s Amused to Death) and capitalized on the enduring popularity of his old band by staging live revivals of ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ and ‘The Wall’.
