Sam Green is a documentary filmmaker. He’s made many movies including most recently A Thousand Thoughts, a live cinematic collaboration with the Kronos Quartet. Previous “live documentaries” include The Measure of All Things and The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller, featuring the indie rock band Yo La Tengo. Sam’s documentary The Weather Underground was nominated for an Academy Award and included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
We recently did two sold-out shows at the ICA in Boston, which is one of my favorite venues anywhere. The theater overlooks the Boston Harbor and has these huge curtains that are dramatically lowered at the start of every show.
