Artist Polaris Castillo hails from South Gate, and has been an integral part of the art movement here in Downey, and a strong artistic voice locally.
The DAC is proud to present the premiere of Polaris’s new short film “BALLOONHEAD” about his famed character. November 18th at the Epic Lounge in Downey, CA- 8239 2nd Street.
BalloonHead is a work of street art that has shown up in public places all across Southern California. He touches a nerve in us, dressed to the 9’s and ready for our busy world of long hours and social pressure, however his mind is able to escape up into the air with colorful levity. This film is his origin story.
The evening features an art show and reception at 6PM, followed by the screening at 8PM. Drinks, food, music, and a community gathering not to be missed. Our last short film screening packed the house, so arrive early to get a good seat in the house.
