Here to discuss their critically renowned documentary Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street, Puppet Tears welcomes the film's producers Trevor Crafts and Ellen Scherer Crafts. Their movie, based on Michael Davis's 2008 book Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street, was an official selection at the 2021 Sundance Film festival, is in theaters now, and is available on-demand Friday, May 7.
We talk with Trevor and Ellen about their journey in creating the acclaimed film, the unique challenges that came with unearthing over 55 years of Sesame Workshop archives, and how their appreciation for Sesame Street's legacy has expanded and deepened since starting this project in 2015. Don't miss a great discussion with these visionary creators of this definitive Sesame documentary. PLUS: learn why the filmmakers chose to gift us with footage of swearing Muppets!
