Film Series: Tower

2016. USA. Dir: Keith Maitland. Documentary/Animation. 92 min.


Before mass shootings became a depressingly regular event, a 1966 incident at the University of Texas at Austin shook the entire nation. Combining archival footage with rotoscope animation, Maitland retells how a shooter held the campus hostage for 96 minutes from atop the university’s bell tower, and how a few brave souls saved hundreds of lives that day.

There will be a moment of silence before the screening for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.
