A winning tale of the persistence and creativity behind one of the most famous and fuzziest faces in the world.The New York Times
With his red fur, orange nose and perpetual desire for hugs, Elmo is one of the most recognisable characters in the world, and this winning documentary charts the rise of the man behind the loveable puppet, Kevin Clash. Following a childhood in 1970s Baltimore, during which he wowed neighbours with his own backyard creations, Clash joined the iconic kids show Sesame Street in the mid-1980s, and has been the puppeteer for Elmo ever since, creating a character who appeals to multiple generations and cultures. Being Elmo is not just unmissable to those for whom Sesame Street was a large part of growing up; it’s a triumphant ode to the wonders of a ceaseless and generous artistic creativity.
