TOWER (2015) dir Keith Maitland [82 min; DCP]

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. TOWER combines archival footage with rotoscopic animation of the dramatic day, based entirely on first person testimonies from witnesses, heroes and survivors, 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.

Awarded Best Animated Film for 2016 by the Boston Society of Film Critics!

“Boldly imaginative… Plays like a historical Hitchcock film about ordinary people thrust into extraordinary circumstances.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“Words can’t do justice to the singular power of Keith Maitland’s documentary TOWER… You might not see a more emotionally shattering film this year.” – Bilge Ebiri, The Village Voice
