The Fuller Challenge | Film
The Fuller Challenge (a film by Whirlwind Creative, Inc. produced in partnership with the Arnow Family Fund) explores the impact and legacy of the Buckminster Fuller Challenge, a groundbreaking prize competition that, in its ten-year trajectory (until 2017) was widely recognized as "socially responsible design's highest award." Many of the Challenge's winners and finalists featured in the film, including John Todd, Bren Smith, Jason McClennan and Jody Holmes, have spoken here at Bioneers over the years, and a Bioneers project, Dreaming New Mexico, was the Challenge runner-up in 2009. Introduction by Elizabeth Thompson and J.P. Harpignies.
