Featuring an introduction and Q&A with Director Bill Daniel

Who is Bozo Texino? is the picaresque chronicle of a 16-year search for the source of a ubiquitous rail graffiti seen on railcars for over 80 years—a simple sketch of a blank-staring character with an infinity-shaped hat and the scrawled moniker “Bozo Texino.” Director Bill Daniel rode freight trains across the West carrying a Super-8 sound camera and a 16mm Bolex, interviewing tramps and brakemen, and in his quest discovered the roots of a folkloric tradition that has gone mostly unnoticed for a century. Taking inspiration from Beat artists Robert Frank and Jack Kerouac, the film functions as a subcultural documentary and a styl- ized fable on wanderlust, outsider identity, and escape.

Who Is Bozo Texino? » Directed, photographed, and edited by Bill Daniel, 2005, 56 min., B/W

ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND features early and formative work by five artists—Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri—who began their careers in the early 1990s in San Francisco’s Mission District and, by the early aughts, had been identified and celebrated as key members of the so-called Mission School.
