Who or what is Konkowsky?
is the legendary experimental filmmaker who has been arrested in seven
countries for shooting without a license, who staged a protest at Mann’s
Chinese Theatre, and who faked his own death.
He is ancient and dwarflike, and many still believe him dead.
What is Instant Konkowsky?
Some say it’s an interactive CD-ROM
Some say it’s a journalist’s
search for Konkowsky, or meaning, or the meaning of Konkowsky, of 10,000 miles
through China, Mongolia, Russia and France
Some say it’s the definitive
biography of the most innovative film artist of the era
Instant Konkowsky is nothing
more than “A can of corn and a cheap trick,” according to Konkowsky
himself. “The ultimate prostitution of
the artist by commercial forces. A
CD-ROM indeed! The beauty and
strangeness of the world smothered in bubble wrap.”
