New Documentary: I Am Big Bird

I just heard about this documentary, which has been making festival rounds since 2014, and receiving critical praise such as “Sheer joy” (Cinema Sentries), “Fascinating” (The Toronto Star), “A magical delight” (Culver City Explorer), and a “Triumphant tearjerker” (POV Magazine).

From the film’s website:

“I AM BIG BIRD is a feature-length documentary about Caroll Spinney, who has been Sesame Street’s Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch since 1969… and at 80 years old, he has no intention of stopping. Think you know everything there is to know about Sesame Street ? You don’t.”

Think this might be one to suggest for our documentary club. :)

Have a great weekend, everyone.
