Creative Time Live from the New York Public Library

Operating under the guise of a cinematic trailer, You Should be the Next Astronaut is the first in a series of short films by Charles de Meaux that revisit the principal cinema genres and play with the conventional movie previews role as a prophecy, a promissory note, and a stoker of audience expectation. Working with the notion that trailers are more ubiquitous than feature-length films, de Meauxs series, created in collaboration with artist and curator Agnieszka Kurant, engages the current condition of cultural consumption, in which products are increasingly consumed before they are encountered.

This is a project of Anna Sanders Films that de Meaux founded with Pierre Huyghe and Philippe Parreno.
