To give it its full title — Who Is Bozo Texino? The Epic Account of the Improbable Discovery of the True Identity of the World’s Greatest Boxcar Artist — is to give something of the flavor of this eccentric-looking film from filmmaker Bill Daniel. Shot in black-and-white on 16mm, the film attempts to find Bozo Texino, one of the most prolific writers of freight train monikers (names/images/tags written on trains by hobos) in the history of the U.S. There wasn’t time to screen it in its entirety, but the film boasts a terrific physical beauty and a truly quirky feel.
