Filmmaker Sam Green co-directed 2002's fascinating The Weather Underground. Nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary, the film dug into the weird, dangerous world of the wannabe hippie revolutionaries who decided to overthrow the government. Now Green's found a subject just as interesting in the bizarre, brilliant R. Buckminster Fuller, the inventor, architect, and professional weirdo who attempted to change the world through re-imagining the way we can and should live, from the mass utilization of geodesic domes to living in autonomous buildings. (Fuller called his version of a futuristic, self-contained home the "Dymaxion House" and I am furious I am not sitting in one right now.) For The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller, Green will pull from images, TEDTalks-inspired narration, and—hot damn!—a live score performed by Yo La Tengo. Prediction: This is going to rule, and it is going to make all of us feel like tiny imbeciles who should be doing far more with our flimsy little lives, and I cannot wait. EH
