Buckminster Fuller: Thinking Out Loud (1996)

This 90-minute biography of a fabulously quirky character aired on the PBS series American Masters. The producers found superb archival footage that demonstrated the genius and the iconoclast in Buckminster Fuller—architect, engineer, poet, inventor and philosopher, whose most memorable legacy is the geodesic dome. The interviews with many artists, cultural observers, and scholars, provide insight and light-hearted reflections on Fuller’s exceptional life.
