The Ant-Society presents: Hobo, Part 1 (1981)

Hobo Excerpt from documentary exploring the quickly vanishing hobo culture.

We speak with the old-timers who have ridden the rails for years and learn about the new generation. This excerpt is the beginning of the doc, and features narration about radio HOBO, "The Big Rock Candy Mountain," and passing trains. Closeups of various hobos and passing landscapes. Old hobo talks about hopping first train. Hobos talk about romanticism of the rails. National PBS broadcast. Won local Chicago Emmy. Scott Jacobs won one for videography.
