The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller
SAM GREEN + YO LA TENGO
Sam Green is a documentary filmmaker based in San Francisco and New York. He has made many movies including most recently The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller, a live cinematic collaboration with the indie rock band Yo La Tengo. His documentary The Weather Underground was nominated for an Academy Award and included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
Yo La Tengo
Incorporating everything from cocktail jazz to psychedelic noise freakouts to gorgeous acoustic tunes into their albums, Yo La Tengo have been one of the most restless and most consistently good bands of the past 25 years. The trio — led by Hoboken, New Jersey, bohemians and husband and wife team Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley — have been pegged as a critics’ band, but their warm, open-armed sound has helped them develop one of the biggest followings in indie rock. – Rolling Stone Magazine
