August 1st 1966 was the day our innocence was shattered. A sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the iconic University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage for 96 minutes in what was a previously unimaginable event. Based entirely on first-person testimonies from witnesses, heroes, and survivors, TOWER combines archival footage with rotoscopic animation of the dramatic day in a seamless and suspenseful retelling of the unfolding tragedy. The film highlights the fear, confusion, and visceral realities 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.
