Sam Green with The Quavers and yMusic

This event is part of the River to River Festival

Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground) teams up with two local musical outfits, the Quavers and yMusic, to create a night of outdoor music and cinema. In recent years, Green has explored the intersection of film and performance through “live documentary,” in which Green narrates a film in person and cues images onto a screen while a band plays a live soundtrack.

As part of the program, Green screens two new pieces: Love Letter to the Fog, a meditation on fog, grief, and the sublime in San Francisco; as well as The Biggest-Smallest, a poem about fate and the outer contours of human experience.

The performance is a follow-up to Green’s internationally-acclaimed live film The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller, a collaboration with the band Yo La Tengo. Both of these new works feature the same unique combination of film clips and live music, as Green’s in-person cinematic narration draws inspiration equally from old travelogues, the Benshi tradition, and TED talks.
