A MAN, WHEN HE IS A MAN (Chile, 1982, 66 min)
Set in Costa Rica and touched with dark humor, this stylistically imaginative documentary illuminates the social climate and cultural traditions which nurture machismo and allow the domination of women to flourish in Latin America.
"An amazing work that successfully reveals the genuinely funny elements of male posturing and its potentially serious consequences. It will be appreciated by general audiences as well as teachers interested in stimulating discussion on sex roles." -Malcolm Arth, Margaret Mead Film Festival

WHO IS BOZO TEXINO?
TRI-X NOISE is a one-night, pop-up event featuring a mobile "gallery" -- a free-standing wall that sets up in the middle of a space with photographs on both sides. The evening includes a reception, film screening of Bill Daniel's film "Who is Bozo Texino?", and local sound artists and musicians. It is a natural thing to have a couple of bands at these events since much of the photography in the exhibition is of live performances. The photographs are analog darkroom prints from Bill's documentary archive. They span from the early 1980's skate punk scene in Texas, and continue through counter cultural activity in the present.
Biography of Bill Daniel
Bill Daniel is an artist, photographer, and filmmaker currently based on the gulf coast of Texas. His work spans a wide range of practices including writing and publishing, touring multi-media installation, large-scale experimental filmmaking, and 35mm film-based photo-reportage. His work typically deals with issues of subcultural expression and identity, ecology, industrialization and occupational folklore. For 30 years he has been a participant/producer in a number of underground scenes, from the early 80's Texas punk scene, the 90's San Francisco Mission School/Critical Mass/experimental film community, and in a continuous, nation-wide culture of touring artists. Daniel's work has been exhibited internationally in places as diverse as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Sluggo's vegan cafe and punk club in Pensacola, Florida. He is a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, and has been recognized by other national and regional awards including Creative Capital and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. His film on history of hobo graffiti, "Who is Bozo Texino?" has become a cult legend and was featured in the record-breaking Art in the Streets exhibit at the LA MOCA in 2011.
