Zeitgeist Films has announced its acquisition of by Tom Sachs’ and Van Neistat’s “A Space Program,” which premiered earlier this year at South by Southwest.
“A Space Program” is the feature film followup to Sachs’ 2012 installation piece “Space Program 2.0: MARS,” in which Sachs built his own mission to Mars with his artistic team. The film invites the viewer on an intricate, hand-made journey to Mars that both documents Sachs’ artistic methods and seeks answers to some of humankind’s most eternal questions.
Zeitgeist Co-Presidents Nancy Gerstman and Emily Russo said. “[We were] completely blown away when we saw Tom’s show at the Park Avenue Armory. ‘A Space Program’ is a captivating introduction to Sachs’ work for the uninitiated and required viewing for his longtime fans. We are thrilled to have it as part of our catalog.”
The film will debut at the new Metrograph Theatre on the Lower East Side in March 2016, with a national rollout set to follow.
