Documentary on Do Ho Suh’s Falling Star to Screen May 5th

UCSD Art Do Ho Suh Falling Star Documentary MCASD

Do Ho Suh’s iconic Falling Star sculpture, memorably perched atop the Jacobs Engineering building at UCSD, will get some special attention this Thursday, May 5! Spend an evening with one of San Diego’s favorite pieces of public art at MCASD‘s screening and discussion of Falling Star: Finding Home. 

The Falling Star is more than just an artistic statement on rough transitions and feeling displaced, it’s an incredible feat of engineering and community action that took years to bring into being. Vera Brunner-Sung and Valerie Stadler’s 2016 documentary Falling Star: Finding Home explores why so many people were compelled by Do Ho Suh’s imaginative idea, and the work they put in to make it a reality.

Tickets can be bought from Arclight Cinema here, on their app, or at the box office for $16.50.
