About the film: Early in 2011, the
band returned to Hansa Studio in Berlin to discuss the making of Achtung
Baby
with Academy Award winning director Davis Guggenheim (It Might
Get Loud, Waiting for Superman, An Inconvenient Truth).
Originally
screened as part of BBC’s Imagine Series across the UK last October, the film was also
the first ever documentary to open the prestigious Toronto International Film
Festival. Twenty Years after the release of U2’s Achtung Baby,
Guggenheim charts the path toward this groundbreaking album. Guggenheim uses
animation and unseen footage from Berlin and Dublin alongside
conversation to reveal what is now a key chapter
in U2’s career. “In the terrain of rock bands – implosion or explosion is
seemingly inevitable. U2 has defied the gravitational pull towards
destruction…this band has endured and thrived. From The Sky Down asks
the question why,” says Guggenheim
