Storyteller Kevin Kling—part humorist, part poet and philosopher, part sacred fool—explores his experience with disability, the one he was born with and the one resulting from a motorcycle accident. With original animations bringing his stories vividly to life, this documentary explores the experience of loss and the journey to healing through storytelling. Kevin Kling: Lost & Found, airs Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 4 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Viewers will see how Kling’s own disabilities — the one he was born with and the one that resulted from a motorcycle accident — have informed his art and life. Kling’s stories draw not only on his childhood growing up in suburban Minnesota, but also on Shakespeare, Dante and Homeric legend: “You have to go epic to make it, to combine healing myths with the reality that we live in.” Original animations bring Kling’s masterful stories vividly to life for television.
