From The Sky Down, the Davis Guggenheim directed documentary about the making of Achtung Baby, has been nominated for Best Long Form Music Video at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

The first ever documentary film to open the Toronto International Film Festival, Guggenheim travelled  with the band back to Hansa Studios in Berlin to reveal the hidden story behind the recording of a landmark album in the band's career.   'Quite simply, ' reported Entertainment Weekly, 'It's one of the most transcendent close-up looks at the process of creating rock & roll I’ve ever seen.'

From The Sky Down is up against some strong competition at the Awards in February including Big Easy Express (Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show), Esperanza Spalding's Radio Music Society, Get Along (Tegan & Sarah) and the Sade concert video Bring Me Home.

Just one?!
Excellent documentary, the way we get to know the band closely and the cartoons which portrayed their thoughts and feelings are out of this world. Stuff like this should get more than one grammy. the versions of One and listening to Edge singing are just amazing. My favourite part? Well, Larry getting upset with Edge in the cartoon for his "noise" but hey, guys, what noise!!! Congrats to you four and to all the people involved in the documentary, all the best from Mexico!

obvious
Congratulations to the band and Davis Guggenheim. It's quite obvious they win the award. I've seen a lot of musical documentaries and there isn't one that comes even close to 'From The Sky Down'
