Roger Waters‘ documentary about his The Wall world tour is to receive its world premiere in September at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The Wall Live Tour took place between 2010 and 2013, becoming the highest-grossing tour for a solo musician.

The film utilizes footage from throughout the tour’s four-year run, which included stops in the UK and Europe, the US, South America, and Australia.

The film is credited to Waters and the tour’s creative director, Sean Evans.

In a statement reported on Rolling Stone, TIFF Director and CEO Piers Handling said, “Ever since The Wall was released, it has become one of the classic rock albums of all time. 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.”

A Director’s Cut of Neil Young‘s film Human Highway will also screen at the festival. You can read about that here.
