A Space Program
ByDesign 2016

Apr 14

(Van Neistat & Tom Sachs, United States, 2015, DCP, 72 min)

Seattle premiere!

Thursday, Apr 14 at 07:00PM
Playfully experimental filmmaker Van Neistat has given artist Tom Sachss 2012 performance piece of the same name the film treatment. Sachss A Space Program takes DIY to another level with the meticulous simulation of a NASA mission to Mars. Using found objects and available materials like plywood and Tyvek, the astronauts construct everything from their space suits to the mission control console to the ship itself. Even the film credits are hand lettered. Yet alongside the projects earnestness is a charmingly oddball sense of humor. The missions stated objective is to find love on Mars, but if not, to leave some love there. Supplies include whiskey, scented candles, and Al Green tapes.

For all A Space Programs whimsy, Sachss passionate attention to detail creates a deeply immersive atmosphere, fueled by a childlike sense of wonder and imagination.

...as a tribute to NASA, A Space Program is rich in the core elements that have always propelled humanitys flights of fancy: imagination and the right tools. -The New York Times
