About the Movie
The American dream of owning a house with a white picket fence goes head-to-head with environmental sustainability in this urgent, beautifully crafted documentary. When an ambitious real estate developer sets out to transform thousands of acres of pristine hill country around Austin, Texas into a suburban development threatening a nearby natural spring and local treasure the community fights back. In the conflict that ensues, we see in miniature the struggle between development and preservation that today plays out in cities and towns across the country. A work of stunning visual beauty and epic scope, The Unforeseen is a grand meditation on the destruction of the natural world in pursuit of an often fleeting dream.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Unforeseen explores the rights of man, the death of nature, the water below, the air above and all that going, going, gone green in between.
Fresh: Add The Unforeseen to the catalog of artfully produced nonfiction films that show how humans are screwing up the planet.
Fresh: The kind of transformative viewing experience that has made the current period a golden age for nonfiction film.
Fresh: No one who sees this intriguing documentary will want to argue with reporter Greider when he forcefully insists, "We need a more mature regard for the future." We do indeed.
Makes you really think about how we manage our world, on a community level. Are we doing doing a good job? If not, how can we make it better. How can we move forward while preserving the environment for our children. What lens should we all be looking through?
