We Are X
From the producers behind the Oscar® winning Searching for Sugar Man comes We Are X, a transcendent rock & roll story about X Japan, the most successful band you’ve never heard of... yet. Under the direction of drummer, pianist, composer, and producer Yoshiki, X Japan has sold over 30 million singles and albums combined and pioneered a spectacle-driven style of rock, creating a one-of-a-kind cultural phenomenon. Chronicling the band’s exhilarating and tumultuous history over the past three decades—persevering through personal, physical and spiritual heartache—the film focuses on preparations for their breathtaking concert at Madison Square Garden. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile), We Are X is an astonishingly intimate portrait of a deeply haunted—but truly unstoppable—virtuoso and the music that has enthralled legions of the world’s most devoted fans.
