More Info

The Us + Them film, which Waters co-directed with his longtime visual collaborator Sean Evans, captures his spectacular performance when it arrived in 2018 in Amsterdam, where Waters and his band play nearly all of Pink Floyd's biggest hits —"Time," "Money," "Another Brick in the Wall Part 2," "Wish You Were Here" —as well as a smart selection of cuts off Is This the Life We Really Want?that spotlight how the world needs more compassion and civility. He drives his ideas home with screens that bisect the audience with images of drone strikes, people living in poverty, houses blown to bits, falling money, and Trump's divisive tweets. At times, it's horrifying and, at others, it's heartrending.

Throughout the concert, he presents the story of a Middle Eastern woman who flees the tyranny of the war that ravages her homeland, abandoning her past and her family, with hopes of a better existence. The character first appeared in the Is This the Life We Really Want? track "The Last Refugee," but on the big screen, her story becomes more poignant and vivid, as she dreams of her lost passion for flamenco dancing and achingly remembers trips to the beach with her daughter, all the while living the life of squalor that refugees all over the world must face. It's a multimedia plea for peace. The audience are clearly affected, during the movie you can see them sometimes moved to tears, overcome with emotion as they sing along.
