U2 has just released their documentary, From The Sky Down, on DVD and Blu0Ray as well as via video download with bonus interviews and performances. The film documents the history of the band up through the making of the band’s pivotal 1991 album, Achtung Baby. More details, including where you can get From The Sky Down for yourself, below!
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.
