About the Film:

I AM BIG BIRD profiles Caroll Spinney, the 80-year-old puppeteer who has been behind
Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch since the show's first season. Relying heavily on
Caroll's incredible archive of home videos dating back to the 1950s, I AM BIG BIRD captures
how the love radiating from Caroll has created a worldwide cultural icon and answers why he
can't say goodbye to the characters he cherishes.
