Gimme Some Truth: Bell Media Best of Hot Docs: Tower

Sat, Nov 5 / 9 pm
Directed by Keith Maitland
2016, USA, 96 min

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 (similar to Waking Life) in a dynamic, never-before-seen way, the incredibly imaginative film 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. Surprisingly touching and poignant, this film will move you as you discover the true to life stories of those who were there who have never discussed the event until now.

Presented in partnership with the Bell Media Best of Hot Docs
