ROGER WATERS THE WALL is a documentary concert film following the Pink Floyd front-man as he performs the iconic album.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'), both spoken and written, as well as occasional use of mild bad language including 'bloody', 'bastard' and 'crap'. Infrequent racist and discriminatory language ('coon', 'queer') also occurs within song lyrics sung satirically from the perspective of a totalitarian regime in which certain groups are maligned.

Nudity

Brief, infrequent sexualised breast nudity appears in a series of three images of a topless woman projected onto large screens during the concert. There are also moments of animated and stylised breast nudity projected onto the screens in which a large female character attempts to slap another character.

Violence

Infrequent mild violence includes a sequence in which a soldier is seen from a distance executing a prisoner, with very brief sight of blood from the shooting.

There are infrequent moderate drug references, including a passing reference to a 'joint'.

The work also contains portrait images of men, women and children killed in various political struggles, conflicts and world events, including 9/11 and the Iraq War, as well as references to the Holocaust. Waters visits military cemeteries in Europe, and there are some emotionally distressing scenes in which he talks about his father's death in WWII.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
