Asphalt NYC: Skater Quim Cardona is the real Telly from the movie "Kids"

Get the behind-the-scenes scoop on Larry Clark's classic film

Director René Sascha Johannsen is producing a new series for Network A called Asphalt NYC in which he will look at influential street and skate personalities throughout New York City. In the first episode we follow around skater and artist Quim Cardona around New York to talk about NYC skateboarding, growing up in the city, and his being the inspiration for the character Telly in Larry Clark's classic film Kids. As Cardona tells us, he was Clark's first choice for Telly but his mother did not want him and his brother getting involved in the drug and sex-fueled fiction world that was Kids.
