About the Movie
Narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, BEING ELMO: A PUPPETEER’S JOURNEY follows Clash’s remarkable career, while also offering a behind-the-scenes look at Sesame Street and the Jim Henson Workshop. As a teenager growing up in Baltimore in the 1970s, Clash had very different aspirations from his classmates—he wanted to be a part of Henson’s team, the creative force responsible for delivering the magic of Sesame Street on a daily basis. With a supportive family behind him, Kevin made his dreams come true.

Fresh: A marvelous movie.
Fresh: A documentary as gentle as its subject: the story of a boy who realized his dream and, on the film's evidence, received a lot of encouragement and support along the way.
Fresh: Watching Clash realize his dream is gratifying, and the behind-the-scenes Muppets stuff is fun.
Fresh: The most interesting part of this lively, likable documentary is the journey.
Elmo is love!!!
I really appreciated this doc. It really shows how important it is to support & respect dreams of others... Especially children. And also to not give up on your dream even when you are discouraged by others... The story & journey of the man behind Elmo is amazing and I can't imagine a world without elmo!!!!
If you love documentaries and the muppets don't miss this one. This movie celebrates people that have a dream as a child and don't give up that passion for what makes them happy.
Great doc and Elmo
Loved getting to know more about the man behind the character and others in the industry as well.
