Tower

Directed by Keith Maitland • 2016 • United States
Starring Monty Muir, Violett Beane, Cole Bee Wilson

August 1, 1966, was the day a generation’s innocence was shattered. A sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage for ninety-six minutes in what was a previously unimaginable event. TOWER combines archival footage with rotoscopic animation of that dramatic day, blending first-person testimonies from witnesses, heroes, and survivors into a seamless and suspenseful retelling of the unfolding tragedy. The film highlights the fear, confusion, and visceral shock that changed the lives of those present, and the rest of us, forever—a day when the worst in one man brought out the best in so many others.
