August 1, 1966. On the quiet campus of Texas University suddenly gunshots are heard. A confused man takes refuge behind the clock tower on top of the main building. He opens fire and shoots at random passersby. What follows is 1,5 hours of immense anxiety, meticulously reconstructed by former victims and witnesses: the boy who just cycled past, a journalist, police rushing to get to the scene, a pregnant woman... ordinary people whose lives changed radically while they learned they are capable of more than they imagined. The story is incisively portrayed with a rotoscoping filming technique, an animation procedure in which live action is interspersed with lots of media clips and archived material. This impressive film won the Audience Award at the SXSW film festival.
