See The U2 Achtung Baby Documentary “From The Sky Down” On Showtime October 29th (Trailer)
In 2011 U2 returned to Hansa Studio in Berlin to tell the story of the one album that changed everything. Premieres on Showtime Saturday, October 29th.
Twenty years after the release of ‘Achtung Baby’, director Davis Guggenheim’s documentary ‘From The Sky Down’ opened 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.
Here’s the trailer:
