the unforeseen- laura dunn

Commissioned by director Terrence Malick, Laura Dunn’s debut documentary takes a refreshingly lyrical approach to an urgent issue – the increasing pressure placed upon the natural environment by rampant real estate and industrial planning. Although Dunn is clearly addressing the problem globally, her film zeroes in on one specific story and location – the proposed development of the beloved Barton Springs watering hole in Austin, Texas, by a former local farm boy-turned-property developer Gary Bradley. His plans sparked a strong populist campaign of environmental activism that, although successful up to a point, failed to make headway within the state legislature once George W. Bush took control (stirring archive footage chronicles this ultimately heartbreaking stand-off).>>
