From the Sky Down, a new documentary about the making of U2's 1991 classic Achtung Baby by filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, is set to premiere with a gala screening at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8th. Guggenheim, the director of An Inconvenient Truth and Waiting for Superman, compiled the film from archival footage of the band recording the album at Hansa studio in Berlin and brand new interviews.

This new documentary is part of a larger celebration of the 20th anniversary of Achtung Baby. In addition to recent concerts featuring an abundance of material from the era, U2 have plans to release an expanded reissue of the album later this year.
