Area Premiere!

Friday, November 11 – Monday, November 14

(2016) dir Stephen Kijak w/Yoshiki, Toshi, Pata, Hiroshi Morie, Sugizo, Gene Simmons [93 min; DCP]
From director Stephen Kijak (Cinemania, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man) comes WE ARE X, a transcendent rock & roll story about X Japan, the world’s biggest and most successful band you’ve never heard of… yet.

Under the enigmatic 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 visual rock, creating a one-­of­-a-kind cultural phenomenon. Chronicling the band’s exhilarating, tumultuous and unimaginable history over the past three decades – persevering through personal, physical and spiritual heartache – the film culminates with preparations for their breathtaking reunion concert at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden. 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.
