The new documentary, Tower, tells the story of the mass shooting at the University of Texas at Austin that shocked the country in 1966. Directed by Keith Maitland and with cinematography by Photography & Imaging Alum Sarah Wilson (Tisch '00), the film pieces together oral history accounts embodied by actors, and then animates them using a technique called rotoscoping. The New York Times ran an excellent review, calling it "haunting."

Tower is now streaming online at PBS Independent Lens
