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. Winner, Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at the **SXSW Film Festival** New York Times Critics' Pick - "*Ingenious. The animation gives Mr. Maitland a lot of creative freedom, allowing him to take Expressionistic leaps.*" -Manohla Dargis, ***The New York Times***
