Out of the Clear Blue Sky (2013)
"Out of the Clear Blue Sky" tells the riveting, behind-the-scenes story of Cantor Fitzgerald. It's a story of disaster without precedent. What do you do when everything - and almost everyone - is gone? On September 10, 2001, financial firm Cantor Fitzgerald was headquartered on the top 5 floors of the World Trade Center. With offices soaring 100 stories above downtown Manhattan, the Wall Street powerhouse was unknown to the public until tragedy struck. On September 11, 2001, 658 of their employees were missing - presumed dead - in the nation's worst terrorist attacks. Overnight, Cantor became world famous for the worst of all possible reasons.

Critic Reviews for Out of the Clear Blue Sky
A film made by and for the families of those Cantor Fitzgerald employees who lost their lives on 9/11, and for them it is by definition beautiful and striking. For everyone else, it might not quite work.
As in most documentaries, spliced-in reenactments are unhelpful. Still, what this movie shares is of great consequence, a moving and unlikely story in a tapestry of stories about a tragic and unlikely event.
A complex story is compellingly told in this powerful 9/11 documentary.
Danielle Gardner's eloquent insider documentary about the Sept. 11 destruction and subsequent rebirth of the investment firm Cantor Fitzgerald.
By de-emphasizing politics in favor of humanitarianism, Danielle Gardner's work also suggests how Americans might yet unify even as the world around them threatens to tear itself apart.
Compelling - it's an insider's poignant view of the harrowing tragedy.
[Gardner] interweaves stirring, ever-troubling9/11-related archival news footage, with personal photos and videos plus some, frankly, dispensable re-enactments.
Like every individual's story of Sept. 11, this one has hidden drama, heartbreak and renewal, adding yet another thread to the tapestry.
