ROGER WATERS: Unveils The Wall Again in Toronto
Former Pink Floyd singer-bassist attends Toronto Film Festival on his 71st birthday.
Roger Waters turned 71 on Saturday and he spent it Toronto where he attended the premiere of The Wall concert film at the Toronto International Film Festival. Waters not only signed autographs for his fans as he entered the theater, but he also took the stage beforehand for a few words followed by a question-and-answer session after the screening with his co-director, Sean Evans.
In his opening remarks, Waters said it was only appropriate that the film be shown first in Toronto as that is where he started the tour four years ago. He also explained that this was the right time for it to come out, saying, “Any armed conflict is an underscore and an exclamation mark to this movie, because this movie is unashamedly anti-war, ecumenical and about love for all men and women whatever their race, color, creed, nationality or whatever.”
There is no release date for the film or word on when it will come out on DVD.
