About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: As a tribute to NASA, "A Space Program" is rich in the core elements that have always propelled humanity's flights of fancy: imagination and the right tools. – Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, Mar 17, 2016

Fresh: An alternately entrancing and amusing documentary-fiction hybrid that marries existential questions with absurdist humor. – Nick Schager, Variety, Mar 16, 2016

Fresh: "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. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Apr 8, 2016

Fresh: Neistat stays true to his subject's oddball sensibility, right down to the hand-lettered credits that crank slowly across the screen after the mission's end. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Mar 14, 2016
