|A Space Program – Trailer
In A Space Program, internationally acclaimed artist Tom Sachs takes us on an intricately handmade journey to the red planet, providing audiences with an intimate, first-person look into his studio and methods. The film is both a piece of art in its own right and a recording of Sachsâ€™ historic piece, Space Program 2.0: MARS, which opened at New Yorkâ€™s Park Avenue Armory in 2012. For Space Program 2.0: MARS, Sachs and his team built an entire space program from scratch. They were guided by the philosophy of bricolage: creating and constructing from available yet limited resources. They ultimately sent two female astronauts to Mars in search of the answer to humankindâ€™s ultimate questionâ€¦ are we alone? Directed by Van Neistat, A Space Program is a captivating introduction to Sachsâ€™ work for the uninitiated, and required viewing for his longtime fans.
