BEING ELMO (U)

For one night only

Date Time
Tues 10th July 7.45pm

Beloved by millions of children around the world, Elmo is an international icon. However, few people know the soft-spoken man behind the furry red monster: Kevin Clash. Constance Marks’ insightful and personal documentary tells the story of one of the world’s most adored and recognisable characters and the visionary behind the icon, as it follows Clash’s remarkable career, while also offering a behind-the-scenes look at Sesame Street and the Jim Henson Workshop.

‘Gentle, sincere, and filled with moments of genuine joy and wonderment, this story of a boy who came to realise his dreams is as good-natured and uncontroversial as Elmo himself.’ – Iain Gray, Film 4 ****1/2
