“Roger Waters: The Wall,” a concert documentary focused on the Pink Floyd co-founder’s recent world tour, will premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
“This immersive experience of Waters’s ‘The Wall Live’ tour, shot in three cities across two continents, is a rib-rattling, sonically stupendous piece of filmmaking,” according to TIFF director and CEO Piers Handling.
Clocking in at 2 hours 13 minutes, the film premieres Saturday, Sept. 6, with additional shows Sept. 7 and 14.
Waters shares directing credit with Sean Evans of production company Deadskinboy, who helped stage the tour. Longtime Waters manager Mark Fenwick is the film’s executive producer.
Waters played 219 shows on his “Wall” tour between 2010 and 2013, grossing $458 million.
Focus Features will release “The Theory of Everything,” a biopic about British physicist Stephen Hawking, on Nov. 7.
Pink Floyd fans will recall Hawking’s synthesized voice is heard on “Keep Talking” from the band’s “The Division Bell” (1994).
The film is based on the book “Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen” by Jane Hawking, the scientist’s first wife. It focuses on his early life before and after his diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).
It stars Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking, and Felicity Jones as his wife.
