Lightyear EntertainmentThe DoorsRobby Krieger, Toto‘s David Paich and members of Vanilla Fudge are among the music stars featured in a new documentary called Rockin’ the Wall, which commemorates the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The film, which was directed by Larry Schweikart, focuses on the influence that rock music had in inspiring the anti-communist revolution that occurred in the former Soviet Union. The movie was based on Schweikart’s 2011 book Seven Events That Made America America.

The documentary soundtrack features a mix of original songs and newly performed cover tunes, including renditions of The Temptations‘ “Ball of Confusion,” The Rascals‘ “People Got to Be Free” and the blues classic “Train Kept a Rollin’.” The original music in the flick was composed by Vanilla Fudge’s Mark Stein, ex-Rare Earth singer Peter Rivera and veteran funk-rock act Mother’s Finest. Other musicians featured in the film include Quiet Riot‘s Rudy Sarzo and Jimmy Haslip, a founding member of the jazz-fusion group The Yellowjackets.

A screening tour of Rockin’ the Wall that kicked off in September is visiting theaters in various cities around the U.S. The trek is plotted out through a November 20 event in Grand Rapids, Michigan, although more screenings may be announced soon. In addition, the movie will be released as a DVD and will premiere on video-on-demand services on November 4. For more information visit,
