Who is Bozo Texino? Screening w/ Ha Ha Ha America
Who is Bozo Texino? is a chronicle of the search for the source of a ubiquitous and mythic 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. Taking inspiration from the beats, the film functions as both sub-cultural documentary and stylized fable on wanderlust and outsider identity. Screens w/ Ha Ha Ha America, an audaciously provocative skewering of assumptions about China vs. US global supremacy and pride.
