I Am Big Bird

Preview by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING its success at numerous international film festivals such as Montclair Film Festival, Los Angeles Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival and AFI Docs, SPECTRUM is pleased to announce the UK release of I Am Big Bird, available digitally from May 15, 2015 and on DVD from June 1, 2015.

To celebrate its release, we are offering 3 readers the chance to take home a copy of the film on DVD!

Puppeteer and cartoonist Caroll Spinney has played Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street since the inaugural season back in 1969 – and shows no sign of stopping yet.

Combining compelling interviews with fellow puppeteer cronies and fascinating material from Carroll’s personal archives, I Am Big Bird illuminates the dynamic portrait of an unknown man whose Sesame Street characters, Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, have influenced generations of children.

An icon of popular culture for over 40 years, beak and feathers weaving a path through American history; Caroll’s stories are the stuff of legend. And, as the yellow feathers give way to grey hair, it is the man, not the puppet, who will steal your heart.

To be in with a chance of winning, just answer this question…

A) Cookie Monster
B) Elmo
C) Oscar the Grouch
