Why We’re ExcitedSince 1969, Carol Spinney has been warming the hearts of American families as Sesame Street’s beloved Big Bird. This documentary introduces audiences to the 78-year-old man in the bird suit, revealing interesting facts you probably didn’t know about one of television’s longest running shows. Made on a shoestring budget, partially consisting of fan donations, the film was a favorite at lasts year’s Los Angeles Film Festival.
