The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller

Sam Green + Yo La Tengo

The Fusebox Festival in partnership with The Contemporary Austin present Sam Green’s latest “live documentary” project accompanied by the legendary musicians of Yo La Tengo (Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and James McNew).

Love Song examines Fuller’s remarkable life as a visionary architect, designer, and social critic, most famous for his creation of the geodesic dome. Green draws heavily from the Fuller archive at Stanford, an astonishing collection of notes, letters, blueprints, photographs, films, and ephemera that contains a wonderful record of the utopian thinker and creator’s massive body of work. Yo La Tengo’s eclectic indie rock provides live musical accompaniment to the film and Green’s live narration.

Additional Support from Alamo Drafhouse Rolling Roadshow.
