    The Love Song of Buckminster Fuller

    Presented by at Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston

    October 20, 2012


    The Love Song of Buckminster Fuller

    The Academy Award–nominated filmmaker Sam Green returns to the ICA with the Boston premiere of his new “live documentary,” The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller (2012, 60 min.) featuring the indie rock band Yo La Tengo.

    Can one person change the world? End poverty? End war? Buckminster Fuller, 20th-century futurist, architect, engineer, and inventor experimented tirelessly for 50 years to find out what one single person could achieve on behalf of humanity. The film explores Fuller’s utopian vision of radical social change through a design revolution. A collaboration between Yo La Tengo and Sam Green, the band’s performance provides the soundtrack for Green’s images and narration. Drawing equal inspiration from old travelogues, the Japanese Benshi tradition of silent film narration, and TEDTalks, the life of Buckminster Fuller has never looked and sounded so beautiful.
