Fusebox Festival: The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller

Sam Green, the Oscar-nominated director of The Weather Underground, calls this work a “live documentary.” Green narrates the film in person and cues images from a laptop while Yo La Tengo perform their original score. The film traces the career of this 20th century visionary.
