From the producers of the Oscar-winning film Searching for Sugar Man and director and documentarian Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man), comes WE ARE X, a captivating and transcendent rock 'n' roll documentary about one of the most successful bands in history, X JAPAN. WE ARE X profiles the blockbuster Japanese rock band and its enigmatic frontman YOSHIKI--composer, classically trained pianist, drummer and the creative force behind the band's wild success. Featuring interviews with Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Stan Lee and more, WE ARE X dives into YOSHIKI's life and X JAPAN's attempt to break into the American music industry. Supported by concert footage, band interviews and fan photos, the compelling film takes a look at X JAPAN's hardships and conflicts including suicide and cultism. Also spotlighting the band's triumphs, WE ARE X explores the X JAPAN's phenomenal success, boasting more than 30 million albumsand singles sold, countless sold-out concerts around the world and fans in North America, Europe, Latin America and South East Asia. 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.

 

Critical soundbites for the film WE ARE X:

 

"If We Are X proves anything, it's that rock bands can experience similar trials: acrimony and fatalities, but also, sometimes, glorious comebacks."

-The New York Times

 

"Invoking the spirit of an epic rock show, We Are X expresses all the energy, joy and sadness of X Japan's music."

-The Los Angeles Times

 

"More than a rock documentary, the film is about friendship, grief, the humans behind the make-up and masks, and the people they indelibly touch."

-LA WEEKLY
