Watch Party: Who Is Bozo Texino?
Part documentary, part railroad dreamscape, the 2005 film from Bill Daniel, Who is Bozo Texino? is billed as “The mostly-factual cinematic account of the epic search and unlikely discovery of hobohemia’s most legendary boxcar artist.” To that end, the San Francisco Guardian hailed it as a “beautiful train-tagging movie.”
Considering moCa’s been on a train-tagging bender of sorts ever since Margaret Kilgallen’s that’s where the beauty is. opened at moCa earlier this year, we’re screening Who is Bozo Texino? by way of a Facebook Live event on Friday, June 12, at 6:30 PM EST. Filmmaker Bill Daniel will be available to answer questions in the chat. Presented in partnership with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, located in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
More from the filmmaker:
“About 30 years ago, I unceremoniously escaped the shackles of straight society—hastily departing on a rattling westbound freight train on a quixotic quest to find the origin of an uncanny boxcar graffiti. With some difficulty, my adventures culminated in the making of a film, Who is Bozo Texino? which since completed, has somehow not facilitated my readmission into straight society, but merely shifted the mode of my chronic vagabondage from living on freight trains and shooting film, to living in a van and showing film.”
