Hobo
The QFT Player 1st Birthday Spectacular™ • 1h 33m
To celebrate the first anniversary of QFT Player's launch we present a special free screening of Hobo by John T. Davis, Northern Ireland’s most distinctive documentary filmmaker and cinematographer. Available to watch for free from Fri 2 - Sun 4 April.

Hobo is an intensely personal portrait of Beargrease, a man gripped with chronic wanderlust. A fiercely independent individual, he embodies the traits of the classic American railroad vagabond.

Beargreese has travelled all his life, as a sailor, a military engineer in Vietnam, then as a hobo riding the steel rails across the length and breadth of the United States. The film follows him and the fellow ‘bos he encounters on a journey, from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Seattle, Washington, some 2,000 miles of bitter, cold, hard travelling on a track known as the Highline.

To make this remarkable film, John T. Davis set off on a dangerous, illegal journey across America. Hiding his camera in his bedroll, he jumped freight trains and led the life of a hobo, sleeping rough and scavenging food from dumpsters. This daring, visually exquisite film examines the limits of human endurance, questions the price of freedom and responsibility, and lays bare the thin thread by which our own reality hangs.

Dir: John T. Davis | 1991 | UK | 1 hr 34 mins
