Join us for a FREE film screening of the documentary, TOWER. TOWER is an animated and action-packed look at America’s first mass school shooting. The film will be followed by a Q&A with lead animator, Aaron Sacco, and light refreshments.

SYNOPSIS: 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.Tower Interview
