OUT OF THE BLUE is a living diary and structural breakthrough in the New York filmmaker's quest for a visual language equal in both thought and expression. Mischievously yet rigorously edited text and images, both Fisher's own plus "borrowed" materials, are laced within infinite blue sky images filmed from the airplane window as the filmmaker travels from Berlin to JFK Airport in NYC. Her passage home links timetravel with mind-journey. Multiple storylines play within conflicting time zones. Memories are juxtaposed with historic disasters (especially the bombing of Hiroshima, and the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center) or personal feelings - especially sorrow, since OUT OF THE BLUE took shape within the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown. Featured music is Lois V Vierk's "Words Fail Me", in its entirety, a work inspired by Vierk's eye witness of the World Trade Center towers crashing down, twenty years ago on 9/11.
