Sam Green + Yo La Tengo “The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller: A Live Documentary”
Sep 19 @ 7:00 pm

Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground), in collaboration with legendary indie band Yo La Tengo, takes the stage to create a “live documentary” that explores 20th-century futurist, architect, engineer and inventor Buckminster Fuller’s utopian vision of radical social change through urban redesign. Fuller, inventor of the Geodesic Dome, foresaw solutions to environmental challenges through “doing more with less” so that everyone would have enough. At each screening/performance, Green narrates the film in person and cues images while Yo La Tengo performs their original score. Wildly creative and experimental in form, The Love Song of Buckminster Fuller draws inspiration equally from old travelogues, the Japanese Benshi tradition, and TED Talks.
