Screenvision to present 9/11 doc 'Out of the Clear Blue Sky'

Aug 26, 2013

Screenvision, in partnership with event-based theatrical distributor Area 23a and Asphalt Films, will present Out of the Clear Blue Sky in select theatres across the country on Sept. 11, 2013. The screenings coincide with the 12th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks. The film, which debuted at the 2012 DocuWeeks Film Festival, will also open at the Regal Union Square in New York City on Sept. 6.

Directed by Danielle Gardner, a September 11th family member, Out of the Clear Blue Sky tells the story of Wall Street powerhouse Cantor Fitzgerald and its controversial CEO Howard Lutnick, who became famous for the worst of all possible reasons; 658 of their employees were missing in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Though Cantor suffered more casualties than any other organization, their story was soon pushed aside as the media ambushed Lutnick, who went from face-of-the-tragedy to pariah within weeks.

"Out of the Clear Blue Sky was created to expose the very real, mostly unknown private side to the public events of September 11th,” says Gardner. “The film inspires a strong reaction in our audiences and compelling conversation and commentary post-screenings. We are pleased that our partnership with Screenvision and Area 23a will allow for that experience and that communal conversation to take place on the anniversary itself, in forums across the country.”

To purchase tickets, visit SkyOnScreen.com or OutOfTheClearBlueSkyMovie.com or purchase directly from the theatre. In select locations, a moderator will guide a post-screening discussion with the audience.
