USA | 96 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. Keith Maitland

On August 1st, 1966, a sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage for 96 minutes. When the gunshots were finally silenced, the toll included 16 dead, three dozen wounded, and a shaken nation left trying to understand. Combining archival footage with rotoscopic animation in a dynamic, never-before-seen way, TOWER reveals the action-packed untold stories of the witnesses, heroes and survivors of America’s first mass school shooting, when the worst in one man brought out the best in so many others.

"By focusing on the survivors of evil instead of a perpetrator of it, and by using a daring style to do so, Tower is one of the most essential films of the year." - Brian Tallerico (RogerEbert.com)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
