Roger Waters Visited Beach Where His Father Died In WWII
It's based around scenes shot on his three-year world tour and accompanied by road-trip footage showing his first visit to the Italian beach where his father died during World War II.
Waters tells Rolling Stone: "I've never tried to visit, because my father's body was never found. I never really knew the circumstances of his death in any detail.
"We'd been in southern Italy, filming in the memorial garden at Cassino - a lot of people gathered, including a news crew. A British expat named Harry Shindler, living in Italy, saw it on his TV. He went, 'I might be able to help that person.'
"He traces people from the war who are missing, and tries to fill in the gaps. He called me and I went, 'Well, that's nice.' Bugger me - he found the spot where he was actually killed. The bit in the film that is just me looking at the sea, that is actually Anzio Beach. It was very moving to be there, but the whole trip was very moving." Read more here.
