Plot Synopsis:

From the production team behind the Academy Award winning Searching for Sugar Man, We Are X is a transcendent and beautifully shot rock 'n' roll story about the Japanese band X (X Japan), one of the biggest rock bands in the world. Celebrated as "a fascinating and assured documentary" (The New York Times) that "tells the greatest rock 'n' roll story America has never heard" (Pitchfork), the film is directed by acclaimed documentarian Stephen Kijak (Stones In Exile, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man).

Under the enigmatic direction of Yoshiki, composer, classically-trained pianist, drummer/percussionist, and the creative force behind the group, X Japan has sold over 30 million singles and albums combined, captivating such a wide range of admirers such as Sir George Martin, Gene Simmons, Marilyn Manson, Stan Lee, and the Japanese Emperor, while pioneering a spectacle-driven style of visual rock called Visual Kei, a one-of-a-kind cultural phenomenon. We Are X is an intimate portrait of a deeply haunted – but truly unstoppable – virtuoso and the music that has enthralled legions of the world's most devoted fans.

"We Are X is an extraordinary and exhilarating documentary about the cultural phenomenon Yoshiki and his best-selling band X Japan," said Randy Wells, Head of Magnolia Home Entertainment. "Stephen Kijak's film is a true celebration of Yoshiki's enduring legacy."
