The long-awaited tour documentary from former Pink Floyd bassist, lyricist and founding member, Roger Waters, premiered this past Saturday (Sept. 6) at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), NME reports.

The Wall, as it’s appropriately titled, was filmed by Waters with the aid of director Sean Evans. The 133-minute film features footage from when the musician was on tour performing his famed show between the years 2010 and 2013.

Music Times reported on the film last month, which you can read about here.

TIFF director Piers Handler praised the release, saying, “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.”

Though The Wall documentary has yet to claim a release date, attendees of the Toronto International Film Festival will have the chance to view the film two more times.

The Toronto Sun notes that the famed musician took part in a Q&A following the film’s screening. On the project, Waters commented, “I think people are sick and tired of being told that the most important thing in their life is commerce and the new this and the new that.”

“I think people are probably ready to grow now,” he added.
