The Unforeseen (2007)


Directed by Laura Dunn
88 minutes, USA
Non-fiction

Description:

A documentary about the development around Barton Springs in Austin, Texas, and nature's unexpected response to being threatened by human interference. Like Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, The Unforeseen contemplates the implications of human behavior for the future of the planet. But unlike the sometimes didactic Gore, Dunn convinces via lyricism, incorporating poetic voice-over narration, mesmerizing motion graphics and aerial photography (in one instance comparing Austin's sprawl to a cancerous tumor). While the hard evidence it presents yields a strong case for conservation, The Unforeseen makes its most lasting impression via its haunting visuals.
