Cantor Fitzgerald 9/11 Documentary Set for Release (EXCLUSIVE)

'Out of the Clear Blue Sky' set for Sept. 6 launch

Danielle Gardner’s documentaryOut of the Clear Blue Sky,” a behind-the-scenes story of Cantor Fitzgerald in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, has been set for release on Sept. 6 by specialty distributor Area23a.

The film will open in New York with additional markets to follow. The release will be accompanied by a series of panel discussions on the long-term effects and ramifications of the attacks.

A total of 658 Cantor Fitzgerald employees perished in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center — more casualties than any other organization. Ronnie Schieb gave the film a positive review at DocuWeeks for Variety: “Mainly focusing on Cantor’s CEO, Howard Lutnick, whose teary reaction made him first a favorite of the press and then its chosen villain, Danielle Gardner’s docu tracks the changing dynamics of the firm’s de facto family.”
