“British personal finance platform money.co.uk ranks Austin the No.1 city in the world for people hunting for a new place to live,” replacing previously top ranked London, according to CultureMap Austin (11/18/2021), one of many sources trumpeting news of Austin’s meteoric rise to the top of the city popularity charts, followed by its plummeting just as quickly back down, from the consequences of its success.

Austin has been the filmmaking base of Jack Cochran and Pamela Falkenberg since 2014, so they saw just what that rise and fall looked like, now documented in STREET VIEW/THE CONCRETE LANDSCAPE. They turn multiple, restless, exploratory cameras on their hometown, combined with a jarring soundscape and poetic commentary extracted from J. G. Ballard’s dystopian novel, High Rise, and top it off with a profusion of fragmented views and digital transitions that repeatedly crashed their editing software, showing just what happens when profit motives drive growth and trump sustainable development.
