"Lucky Balls: The True Story of Charging Bull"

Film Screening


Wednesday, December 3, 2014 | 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Over the last 25 years, Italian sculptor Arturo DiModica's larger-than-life bronze "Charging Bull" has been visited by millions of New Yorkers and tourists from around the world. On any day of the year, if a person stands in Bowling Green at the southern tip of Broadway in Lower Manhattan – where “Charging Bull” has stood for 25 years – he or she will likely hear countless tour guides telling tourists the "true" story of the sculpture. There is a seemingly endless number of different stories, some of which are very unusual.

In honor of the 25th anniversary of “Charging Bull” this December, a professional filmmaker – with the full cooperation of Arturo DiModica and others who were responsible for the placing of this world famous sculpture in Lower Manhattan – will tell the real story of “Charging Bull” as it has never been told before in a fascinating one hour documentary.

Join us for the world premier of the film, "Lucky Balls: The True Story of Charging Bull," followed by commentary by special guest Arturo DiModica. The director, producers and others who appear in the film will also attend the screening, which will be followed by a reception in the Museum gallery.
