A Space Program: A film by Tom Sachs
Tom Sachs (who we featured in the May 2016 with his friends in Satan Ceramics) much anticipated "A Space Program" film will be making a tour of Alamo Drafthouse theaters in the coming weeks, starting off in San Francisco from April 15-21, 2016.
About the film:
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?
A Space Program is a captivating introduction to Sachs’ work for the uninitiated, and required viewing for his longtime fans.
A Space Program premiered at South by Southwest in March 2015 and will open theatrically in March 2016. For more information visit www.zeitgeistfilms.com/film/aspaceprogram for the full schedule of events.
