Buckminster Fuller
, twentieth-century futurist, architect, engineer, and inventor he called himself a 'comprehensive anticipatory design scientist' experimented tirelessly for fifty years to find out just what a single person can do on behalf of humanity.

The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller is a new hour-long 'live documentary' from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green exploring Fuller’s utopian vision of radical social change through a design revolution.

Originally commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s Design and Architecture Department, the project is a collaboration between Green and the legendary indie band Yo La Tengo. At each screening, Green narrates the film in person and cues images while Yo La Tengo performs their original score. The film’s unique form draws inspiration equally from old travelogues, the Benshi tradition, and TEDtalks.
