    • RAMIRO "RAY" MARTINEZ: an off-duty Austin Police officer who rushed to campus to help, Ray was the first one to reach the top of the Tower. With fellow officer Houston McCoy, Ray ended the siege.
    • Filmmaker Keith Maitland: director and producer of TOWER, winner of a Grand Jury Prize at the Dallas International Film Festival, as well as the Grand Jury Prize, Audience Award and Lone Star Award at SXSW. Maitland was raised in Plano and is excited to bring this film home to Dallas.
  • On August 1st, 1966, a sniper rode to the top of the University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage 96 minutes. When the gunshots were finally silenced, the toll included 16 dead, three dozen wounded. Fifty years after America's first mass school shooting, TOWER reveals the untold stories of the witnesses, heroes and survivors - when the worst in one man, brought out the best in so many others.
