I AM BIG BIRD: THE CAROLL SPINNEY STORY

DIRECTOR: DAVE LAMATTINA, CHAD WALKER - UNITED STATES

One of the most recognizable and beloved children’s television characters in history, Big Bird has been entertaining and educating children around the world for over 40 years. But few fans know about the man who brings Big Bird (and Oscar the Grouch) to life: Caroll Spinney. A delightfully sweet examination of the power of following your dreams, I Am Big Bird chronicles a fascinating life journey with epic loves and losses, those of a man who has brought joy to millions by never losing his childlike sense of wonder. Even at age 79, he is Big Bird. “If your heart warmed to the big yellow bird that entertained generations, your heart will melt in this loving portrait of the creative genius who brought him to life.”—Twitch.
