I just got back from a tour of my program of short films, What We Need is the Impossible!, as part of the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation On Screen / In Person event series. We spent ten days traveling around the region from New York to Virginia for screenings, and had a great time.
I wrote a blog post for the foundation about commemorating little-know historical details while in Monmouth, NJ, which is actually where President James Garfield died. You can check out that post here.
Last week’s screenings of The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller at The Kitchen in NYC went super well. We did four shows at the illustrious venue—Buckminster Fuller’s daughter was actually at several of them and spoke afterwards, which was great. The New York Times also published an article about the performances and the piece in general.
Michelle Aldredge just published an essay in web magazine Gwarlingo about “Love Song,” Buckminster Fuller, Yo La Tengo, utopia, the future, and our live documentary format. You can check it out here.
For all you Hebrew speakers, Israeli TV recently did a piece about Esperanto using a lot of material from my documentary on the subject, The Universal Language.
James McNew from Yo La Tengo and I were interviewed recently by WBUR in Boston about The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller. You can listen to the show online here.
Honored that The Weather Underground was included in Dennis Lim’s list of Top 10 Sundance Documentaries.
I just did a new short live piece with the Quavers at Pop-Up magazine in San Francisco recently. The piece was about fog in SF—I narrated in person and cued images while the Quavers played a score. It was at the huge SF Symphony Hall. We had fun.
The San Francisco Chronicle asked me recently to write something about my favorite book. Check it out here.
