WiA Austin Shortfilm: A Violet Horizon
A Violet Horizon traces Austin's rich history through an understanding of demographics, topography, and climate. Seen through the eyes of women in architecture, this film explores the past with a journey through multiple neighborhoods that shaped the history of the city, while also highlighting the city's current exponential growth of its population. The effects of the city's growth has presented social challenges facing Austin such as a diminishing African American population and an increasing homeless population. The film gives the audience a thorough understanding of Austin culture's critical aspects — its place in history and politics, its progressive art scene, and, of course, innovative architecture. More than anything, A Violet Horizon is a love letter to the city, no matter the era. This documentary helps us understand social changes Austin has faced through its architecture, evolving skyline, and constant city growth, while ultimately crowning Austin as Texas's royal seat.
