I Am Big Bird

IAmBigBird 550“Who expected the Big Bird movie to be this year’s triumphant tearjerker  … speaks to the heart of a viewer and brings out the softie in everyone.” –POV

Caroll Spinney, age 80, has been Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch since 1969… and has no intention of stopping. And he has plenty of stories to tell: how Big Bird almost went for a trip on the Space Shuttle, or that Oscar nearly burned in a trash-can fire. I AM BIG BIRD tells the lovely and inspirational story of a man, and his puppets, that will forever live in the hearts of generations of children. (U.S., 2014, 90m, mTuckman Media, digital)
