Born in America (34 mins)

Reclamation: The Rise at Standing Rock (23 mins)


On September 11, 2001, Wall Street executive Steven Fetter was a block away when the South Tower of the World Trade Center came down. As the grey dust cloud overcame him, Fetter believed that his life would then be over. “A Blue Sky Like No Other” is a documentary short in which Fetter offers an eyewitness perspective of that day, memorializes the heroes who lost their lives while saving others, and explains how surviving that tragedy led him to change his life by leaving Wall Street and heading West.

The film features original music by Laura Warshauer, the first recipient of the Buddy Holly Singer/Songwriter Award. This documentary short is based upon Fetter's one-person play that he earlier presented in New York City (where it was designated a Critics' Pick by Time Out New York) and Rochester (NY).
