In conjunction with Roger Waters’ restaging of The Wall, Gerald Scarfe brings Pink Floyd fans a never-before-seen look at the legendary band and the making of The Wall in all its forms - the album, the stage show, the film, and the aforementioned reinvented 2010 tour. As the designer and director of animation for the classic Wish You Were Here and the Wall‘s first stage show and film, Scarfe intimately recounts the band’s high and low points, both on and off the stage.
