Stephen Kijak's explosive, introspective, and heartfelt Sundance award-winning rock doc!

From the production team behind the 2016 Oscar® winner for Best Documentary Searching for Sugar 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 — 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.

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. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man), 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.

“Engrossing...an entertaining and potent portrait.” - Indiewire
