THERE’S AN INTERESTING (AS IN VERY INTERESTING) SIDE STORY TO ‘KEN PARK’ & THE LONDON FILM FESTIVAL – LARRY CLARK CLOCKED HIS UK DISTRIBUTOR . . . BROKE HIS NOSE . . ALLEGEDLY OVER 9/11 . . THE UK DISTRIBUTOR NEEDLESS TO SAY, SEVERED ALL TIES TO THE FILM – & -WITHOUT A DISTRIBUTOR IT WAS PULLED FROM THE FESTIVAL !!
“I’m sorry I lost control and acted in an uncivilized manner, ” says Clark in a signed statement to
(BBC) COLLECTIVE . . .”But if he was trying to provoke me, he did. He went to the hospital with a broken nose, and I went to jail.” He was later released with a caution. the story was written by JONATHAN CARTER, on BBC COLLECTIVE (NOV 2002)
