Watch a film screening and discussion on the documentary Tower
The UT Tower shooting is infamous as America’s first mass school shooting. Meet the survivors and heroes of that day in “Tower,” an animated documentary film.
Keith Maitland's feature-length documentary “Tower" combines archival footage with animation to share the untold stories of the witnesses, heroes and survivors of America’s first mass school shooting at the University of Texas in 1966. The Texas Tribune, in partnership with Independent Lens and KLRU, presents this special screening of the film.
Following the screening, stick around for an online discussion with the film’s director and producer, Keith Maitland and Megan Gilbride, respectively; John "Artly" Fox, a survivor of the UT shooting; and Dr. Joan Neuberger, professor at UT-Austin and historian of the UT shooting. Rodney Gibbs, chief product officer of The Texas Tribune, moderates the discussion.
