Co-presented with Northwest Film Center

Can one person change the world? Architect, inventor, and twentieth-century futurist Buckminster Fuller experimented tirelessly for fifty years trying to answer this question. Drawing equal inspiration from TEDtalks and Benshi film narration, The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller is a new “live documentary” from filmmaker Sam Green. Accompanied by a score performed live by Yo La Tengo, Green will cue images and narrate the film, exploring Fuller’s utopian vision that a design revolution could usher in radical social change.

The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller premiered at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art as part of the 2012 San Francisco International Film Festival.
