SFIFF: Sam Green explores the geodesic world of R. Buckminster Fuller in new documentary

Bucky Fuller, living the Dymaxion lifestyle

"It's only through doing a live piece that you learn what works and what doesn't. It's almost like a comedy routine," Green observes. "You do it and you feel that people respond to certain parts, they don't respond to other parts, and you grow it and edit it and shape it based on that."

As to whether or not he thinks there's more to explore in the world of Bucky Fuller, he says, "With this I'm doing a live piece and an installation, and I may at some point do just a regular documentary about Fuller. I'm open. I'm certainly not done with him yet."
