KENK

The official KENK site up is now up and running! For more KENK: @KENKisms Twitter feed is now live with daily quotes pulled right from the original documentary source footage for KENK: A Graphic Portrait

"KENK: A Graphic Portrait is a ground-breaking 304-page journalistic comic book detailing the life and times of Igor Kenk, “the world’s most prolific bicycle thief” (The New York Timesand The Guardian). In summer 2008, Kenk was arrested and nearly 3,000 bicycles were seized in one of the biggest news stories of the year. Built from more than 30 hours of never-before-seen intimate footage taken over the year leading up to his arrest, KENK is a thought-provoking and surprisingly funny portrait of an outsize neighbourhood figure and a city in flux, both wracked by the forces of gentrification and by a burgeoning global environmental and economic crisis that promises to define our generation. KENK is an exciting new hybrid that simultaneously takes the form of documentary film, journalistic profile and comic book."
