I AM BIG BIRD

Expected to Attend: Dave LaMattina, Chad Walker, producer Clay Frost, film subjects Caroll and Debra Spinney

NYC PREMIERE Sesame Street’s Big Bird may be one of the world’s most recognizable characters, but far less familiar is Caroll Spinney, the man who has brought to life the yellow- feathered Muppet—as well as the irascible Oscar the Grouch—since 1969. Through Spinney’s rich personal archive and behind-the-scenes show footage, this endearing film celebrates a career spanning nearly a half century, which includes a memorable adventure in China, a near- trip to outer space and, most importantly, an indelible impact on generations of kids.
