“Over the L’Arc-en-Ciel” documents a legendary rock band who never fear to take challenges on the international stage, when they have already reigned over the domestic music scene. L’Arc-en-Ciel, after celebrating their 20th anniversary, embarked on a massive world tour that no other Japanese rock band had ever done before. From March 3rd to May 31st, 2012, L’Arc-en-Ciel’s 14-city world tour hit Hong Kong, Bangkok, Shanghai, Taipei, New York, London, Paris, Singapore, Jakarta, Seoul, Yokohama, Osaka, Tokyo, and Honolulu with a total attendance of 450,000 people. The band also became the first solo Japanese act ever to perform at Madison Square Garden.


In this film, Japanese American director Ray Yoshimoto captured the global “phenomenon of L’Arc-en-Ciel” with a fresh, unbiased viewpoint, which would captivate both hardcore fans and newcomers alike. The film shows rare backstage scene and candid footage of the band, showing the members’ true and gentle emotions in a mixture of smile, confusion, excitement, as well as tension. Revealed in this film are not only raw personal charms of each member, but also the essence of true professionalism deep inside these respectable musicians.


After the very successful release in movie theaters around the globe, “Over the L’Arc-en-Ciel” will be distributed via internet to all over the world except Japan. Their unreleased special live footage of “WORLD TOUR 2012”, including “X X X” and “STAY AWAY” from the London show, and “MY HEART DRAWS A DREAM” and “Driver’s high” from the Jakarta show,  will also be distributed for the first time with the documentary film.
