Drafthouse Films’ ‘We Are X’ Nominated For Best Music Documentary By The Broadcast Film Critics Association For First Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards
Broadcast Film Critics Association announced their nominees for Best Music documentary, which includes Drafthouse Films’ forthcoming ‘WE ARE X.’ The nomination comes ahead of the film’s Friday, October 21 release in Los Angeles, followed by a nationwide expansion. Director Stephen Kijakand film subject, the legendary composer, musician and producer YOSHIKI, will appear for a series of Q&As opening weekend at Landmark’s NuArt Theatre in Los Angeles.
Produced by the Oscar-winning team behind Searching For Sugar Man,‘WE ARE X’ is a beautifully shot and emotionally transcendent telling of the incredible story of X JAPAN, one of the biggest rock bands in the world.
Under the enigmatic direction of drummer, pianist, composer, and producer YOSHIKI, X JAPAN has sold over 30 million singles and albums combined–captivating such a wide range of admirers as Sir George Martin, KISS, Stan Lee, and even the Japanese Emperor–and pioneered a spectacle-driven style of visual rock, creating a one-of-a-kind cultural phenomenon.
