Inside Kenk is a half-hour documentary film, based on the successful 2010 graphic novel “KENK: A Graphic Portrait”, chronicling the life of Toronto’s Igor Kenk, the Slovenia-born man dubbed "the world’s most prolific bicycle thief" by The New York Times. The film, written and directed by Jason Gilmore aims to bring to life Kenk’s story, his flawed yet compelling personality and the remarkable, shocking revelation - unforeseen even by his most vocal detractors - that Kenk had been hoarding thousands of stolen bicycles in locations around the city. Told through a collection of present day interviews with various affected parties, interspersed with animated sequences in the original graphic novel style, that recount Igor’s personal story and the lead up to his arrest, culminating in a candid sit-down interview with Igor Kenk today.
