She started making documentaries in response to her undergraduate experience at Yale University. Through her films The Subtext of a Yale Education, Baby, Green, and Become the Sky, Dunn examined the corporatization of higher education, environmental racism, and population growth. Her work has screened internationally in film festivals, art galleries, theaters, universities, churches and union halls. Honors include a Rockefeller Media Arts Fellowship, Student Academy Award and Yale’s Trumbull College Fine Arts Prize. She lives in Austin,Texas. The Unforeseen is her first full length documentary.
The Unforeseen / Laura Dunn
The documentary follows an ambitious west Texas farm boy with grandiose plans who has tired of living at the mercy of nature and sets out to find a life with more control. He heads to Austin where he becomes a real estate developer and skillfully capitalizes on the growth of this 1970s boomtown. At the peak of his powers, he transforms 4000 acres of pristine Hill Country into one of the state’s largest and fastestselling subdivisions. When the development threatens a local treasure – a fragile limestone aquifer and a naturally spring-fed swimming hole – the community fights back. In the conflict that ensues, we see in miniature a struggle that today plays out in communities across America.
