'From The Sky Down'

18
Twenty years after the release of 'Achtung Baby',  director Davis Guggenheim's documentary 'From The Sky Down' will open the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Guggenheim (Waiting for Superman, An Inconvenient Truth, It Might Get  Loud) charts this groundbreaking album with new interviews, stories and  unseen footage from Berlin and Dublin.  Now a key chapter in their  career, Achtung Baby was, in Bono’s words, 'the sound of four men  chopping down The Joshua Tree'.

'In the terrain of rock bands, implosion or explosion is seemingly  inevitable, ' explains Guggenheim. 'U2 has defied the gravitational pull towards destruction,  this band has endured and thrived. The movie From The Sky Down asks the  question why.'

The Toronto International Film Festival® opens September 8  with the world premiere Gala Presentation of From the Sky Down, the first time in 36 years that the Festival has opened with a documentary.

Ready for a great movie
This movie will be an amazing project to celebrate the 20 years jubilee of an album that changed U2;s history so radically. Having moved away from their classic sound as far as they could, U2 truly reinvented themselves creatively and artistically. Instead of rejoicing in ringing guitar notes, the band made us enter a new and exciting musical universe full of noise, gloomy moods, heavy sounds and amazing technology. Listening to it now, the songs seem to be even darker and when U2 play them live in concert they still sound as fresh and contemporary as if they had been written this year. In 1991 this exceptional album was clearly ahead of its time.
