AIA FILM CHALLENGE - "Tiny Victories 2.0." A Tale of Empathy
"Tiny Victories 2.0. A Tale of Empathy" tells the story of Chioco Design's team journey when building a micro home for an individual who has struggled with chronic and sustained homelessness. How organizations like AIA Design Voice and Mobile Loaves & Fishes works timely to offer hope for the community. The word "empathy" serves as a prompt in the development, and execution, but mostly the idea of leaving behind preconceptions of what it is like to live without a home.

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.

Wahoo music video by Cilantro Boombox
In these trying times, the music from Austin’s Cilantro Boombox is a much-needed escape. Their energetic, positive stance on how they go about their workflows ever so effortlessly through one’s body. To create such an experience for fans to enjoy, Cilantro Boombox utilizes a fusion of brass instrumentation, electronic music, and Latin and Pan-African sounds. The contrast of just wanting to dance, shake things up and scream, juxtaposed with images of Black Lives Matter protests in Austin was a way to tie it all together and tip our hats to all of those that continue to fight for a better and more fair future.
