Sam Green & Yo La Tengo Live Score: The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller (Off-site at the Skirball)

Presented by Skirball Cultural Center

Experience “live documentary” with Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green and legendary indie rock band Yo La Tengo at this very special one-night only event in the Skirball’s intimate 300-seat Ahmanson Ballroom. The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller traces the career of twentieth-century futurist, architect, inventor, and author R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983). An early proponent of environmental stewardship, Fuller spoke persuasively about contemporary design and architecture’s ability to tackle issues of sustainability and conservation and to stimulate radical societal change. Green’s live narration is accompanied by Yo La Tengo performing their original score on stage.

“A singular experience, and a collective one, with the potential for human connection and human error.” – The New York Times

“…A movie being born as you see it and hear it, as alive as music.” – Rebecca Solnit
