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. Narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, "Being Elmo" 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 Henson's team, the creative force responsible for delivering the magic of Sesame Street on a daily basic. With a supportive family behind him, Kevin made his dreams come true. Featuring interviews with Frank Oz, Rosie O'Donnell, Cheryl Henson, Joan Ganz Cooney and Clash himself, filmmaker Constance Mark's insightful and personal documentary tells the story of one of the world's most adored and recognisable characters and the visionary behind the icon.
