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 Sachs’ historic piece, Space Program 2.0: MARS, which opened at New York’s Park Avenue Armory in 2012.

For Space Program 2.0: MARS, Tom 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 humankind’s ultimate question… are we alone?

Directed by Van Neistat, A Space Program is a captivating introduction to Sachs’ work for the uninitiated, and required viewing for his longtime fans.

“A Space Program” is rich in the core elements that have always propelled humanity’s flights of fancy: imagination and the right tools.

THRILLING... Ingenuity rules the performance and the film.

An ALTERNATELY ENTRANCING AND AMUSING documentary-fiction hybrid that marries existential questions with absurdist humor.... A testament to the joy of resourcefully fashioning the exceptional from the ordinary.

In addition to being a FUNNY, INVIGORATING AND INSPIRATIONAL ode to being the cleverest kid in the room, it’s a remarkable testament to the suspension of disbelief.

GREAT FUN!... Neistat's snappy visual style is a good match for Sachs' idiosyncratic creations... nail-biting, edge of your seat stuff!

A HILARIOUS ODE TO BRICOLAGE!

INGENIOUS! A radically DIY fictional space-documentary about a trip to Mars—think Michel Gondry directing Carl Sagan’s Cosmos with John Carpenter writing the script.

Embraces its lo-fi aesthetics and is no less intriguing for it.

Sci-fi by way of Wes Anderson... my favorite discovery at SXSW.

Evoking the most immersive playdate with your own most practical yet imaginative childhood friend, "A Space Program" may find cheeky humor in our quest for meaningful science. But it certainly hints that there's something worshipful in the details.
