An Taisce film nights present The Unforeseen. Winner of the 2008 Independent Spirit award. "The Unforeseen" has been called "The best film of the 2007 Sundance Film festival, hands down." by Gavin Smith of Film Comment.
In the 1980s, an ambitious real estate developer came to Austin, Tex., with a dream--to transform miles of pristine wilderness into a sprawling self-sufficient city. When the development threatened a local treasure, a fragile limestone aquifer and a naturally spring-fed swimming hole, the community decided to fight back. Laura Dunn's lyrical and beautifully crafted documentary uses this landmark struggle--a microcosm of what's happening in communities across the country today--to consider the cost of unsustainable development.
