'Being Elmo' won the Special Jury Award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Most American parents are very much aware of Elmo, the child-like fuzzy red Muppet on Sesame Street who has become a favorite among the show's youthful audience. Far fewer people know the name Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who brings Elmo to life. Filmmaker Constance Marks introduces viewers to the man behind the Muppet in this documentary. It offers a backstage look at Clash's life and times, a look into his working methods, and insight into how he informs Elmo's personality and uses the character to send a positive message to the world.
A marvelous movie. - Entertainment Weekly
