Reel to Reel: We Are X

Featuring a post-screening conversation with Yoshiki

X Japan is the most successful rock group in Japanese history. Led by composer, drummer, and pianist Yoshiki, the band has sold more than 30 million albums, singles, and videos combined, sold out Japan’s 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome 18 times, and played to millions of fans around the world. The documentary film We Are X chronicles 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 premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016 and won the award for Best Editing. The film then won an award at the South by Southwest Film Festival, followed by a worldwide release in over 20 countries and 27 international film festivals. The GRAMMY Museum will present a special screening of this film, followed by an intimate conversation with Yoshiki moderated by Lyndsey Parker, Music Editor at Yahoo Entertainment
