Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is bringing Roger Waters: Us + Them to digital for purchase and rental on June 16, 2020. The concert film is directed by Sean Evans and legendary Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters documenting his 2017-2018 tour.
As the founding member, lyricist, composer and creative force behind Pink Floyd, US + THEM presents Waters’ powerful music in stunning form and highlights its message of human rights, liberty and love. Based around his acclaimed, sold-out US + THEM worldwide tour of 2017-2018, comprising a total of 156 shows to 2.3 million people across the globe, it features classic songs from The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, as well as his most recent album, Is This The Life We Really Want?
Directed by Sean Evans and Roger Waters, the film provides a visceral sense of what it was like to be there. Using the most innovative digital and audio technology available, this state-of-the-art show encapsulates a series of breath-taking visual, audio and sensory experiences. It captures Waters’ legendary live performances and takes the audience on an emotionally charged, thought-provoking journey.
Waters powerfully demonstrates that he is, at heart, a musical activist and one of the most passionate political commentators of his time. He has dedicated his life to fighting against those who seek to control our lives and destroy our planet. Welcome to the Machine and Another Brick in the Wall Part II are a stark reminder of the bleak warnings that he gave decades ago about alienation, displacement, greed, suffering, destruction and loss. And yet the humanity of the songwriter cannot be more plainly seen than in Wish You Were Here, because although he presents a grim picture of the state of the world, ultimately his message is one of hope through unity and love.
