With the 12th anniversary of 9/11 soon upon us, Indiewire presents the exclusive trailer for the harrowing documentary “Out of the Clear Blue Sky,” which examines the tragedy of that day through the prism of bond trading firm Cantor Fitzgerald.
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
notorious 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. A true
stranger-than-fiction account, unfolding over months and years, the film
captures what it feels like to be caught in the crosshairs of history.
film will open at the Regal Union Square in New York City on September
6. It debuted at the 2012 DocuWeeks Film Festival to critical acclaim. It will also show at 7 pm on September 11th in theaters
across the nation. To purchase tickets, please visit SkyOnScreen.com.
