The movie, which features performances from the ex-Pink Floyd mastermind’s recent The Wall Live Tour, will be available as a DVD, a two-disc Blu-ray set and a high-def digital download.

In addition to dynamic live footage from some of Roger Waters‘ multimedia-enhanced performances of his old band’s 1979 concept album The Wall, the film features segments capturing the musician’s pilgrimage to his grandfather’s gravesite in France and to a memorial honoring his father in Italy. The movie also includes scenes in which Waters discusses his antiwar sentiments with members of his family.

“I’m glad that we have an opportunity to share the film with people on a wider scale,” says Waters in a statement. “It has had a deep effect on my life; and I’m not the only one. This release provides an opportunity to remember all of our fallen loved ones.”

The Blu-ray edition of Roger Waters The Wall contains more than 95 minutes of bonus footage, including performances from a May 2011 concert at London’s O2 Arena that featured guest appearances by Pink Floyd singer/guitarist David Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason. Among the other extras are outtakes of Waters trip to Europe, time-lapse concert footage and a scene of Roger visiting the grave of Frank Thompson, a soldier and poet killed in World War II. The DVD also features the time-lapse footage and the visit to Thompson’s grave.

Meanwhile, a Roger Waters The Wall soundtrack album is slated to be released sometime this fall.

As previously reported, Roger Waters The Wall was screened in hundreds of theaters across the country for one night only in the U.S. this past Tuesday. Encore screenings have been scheduled in a variety of U.S. venues starting on Sunday, October 18.
