TOWER examines the country’s first mass shooting, which took place August 1, 1966, when Charles Whitman, a former Marine, perched at the top of the Main Building tower at the University of Texas Austin and opened fire on the campus and surrounding streets. This important film, which Vieira executive produced, has a 100% Certified Fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes tells the otherwise untold stories of the heroes and tragedies of that day.
