V&A presents: Pink Floyd The Wall + Live Q&A
This is a collaboration with The V&A as part of their Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains exhibition, It is the first international retrospective of one of the world’s most iconic and influential bands.
In this visual riff on Pink Floyd's album "The Wall," successful but drugged-out musician Pink (Bob Geldof) is looking back on his isolated childhood from the confines of a Los Angeles hotel room. Through a swirl of flashbacks and chemical-induced hallucinations, Pink recalls his lonely upbringing, during which he built a symbolic wall to the world as he coped with the death of his father (James Laurenson) and the overbearing ways of his mother (Christine Hargreaves).
The screening will be followed by a live Q&A with the exhibition curator, Victoria Broackes.
