8:30ppm – Tower
The most tragic incidents in modern American history are the shootouts that take place in universities and schools by gun-wielding psychopaths. One of the earliest of such ghastly incidents was in 1966 when a sniper rode the elevator to the top floor of the University of Texas Tower and opened fire, holding the campus hostage for 96 minutes.

Tower is one of the most fascinating documentaries in the festival. Unmissable!



4:30 pm – Don’t Call Me Son – This film has a terrific plot: A young boy gets the shock of his life when he learns that the person he has grown up calling his mother is actually someone who had kidnapped him as a child. As he is trying to cope up with this shocking development, he will finally meet his biological family.

The acting has received unanimous praise on the festival circuits. This one promises to be a riveting drama!
