Sam Green + Yo La Tengo / The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller

Wexner Center Film/Video Theater (advanced ticket purchase required)
October 18, 2012 - 7:00pm

 

Documentary filmmaker Sam Green returns to the Wexner Center with his latest “live documentary” project.  A follow-up Utopia in Four Movements (a previous "live documentary" project presented at the Wex in 2010), 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. Joining Green on stage is the legendary alternative rock band Yo La Tengo (Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and James McNew) who provide live musical accompaniment to the film and Green’s live narration. This is a wondrous night of film and music you won’t want to miss! (digital presentation, 60 mins).

This event is cosponsored by the KSA.

Purchase your ticket in advance at the Wexner Center ticket office or via their website.

There are two screenings of The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller on the 18th, one at 7PM, and a second at 9:00PM. For more information, visit the Wexner Center website.
