“Who is Bozo Texino” with Filmmaker Bill Daniel

June 27, 2006 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

The secret history of hobo and railworker graffiti. Shot on freight trips across the western US over a period of 16 years, Who is Bozo Texino? chronicles the search for the source of a ubiquitous rail graffiti–a simple sketch of a character with an infinity-shaped hat and the scrawled moniker, “Bozo Texino”–a drawing seen on railcars for over 80 years. This spectacular travel adventure faithfully photographed in realistic black and white film at considerable risk from speeding freight trains and in secret hobo jungles in the dogged pursuit of the impossibly convoluted and heretofore untold history of the century-old folkloric practice known as hobo and railworker graffiti and chronicling the absurd quest for the true identity of railroading’s greatest artist will likely amuse and confound you in its sincere attempt to understand and preserve this mysterious artform.
