The 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 October 21st release in Los Angeles, followed by a nationwide expansion. Director Stephen Kijak and 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.
Yoshiki will appear at the Friday (Oct. 21) 7:30pm screening in L.A. for an exclusive Q&A with fans.
