Go inside the hearts and minds of the Sesame Street creators, artists, and educators who established one of the most influential and enduring children’s series in television history.

“It’s magic …  Sesame Street gets the loving history it deserves.” – Kate Erbland, Indiewire

With exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and over 20 original interviews, Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street introduces audiences to a gang of visionaries who set out to entertain and educate young minds by harnessing the power of television with furry characters, catchy songs, and a diverse cast. Featuring original series director Jon Stone, Muppets creator Jim Henson, savvy television executive Joan Ganz Cooney and many more (including, of course, Big Bird, Kermit the Frog and Cookie Monster!), this humorous, touching and fast-paced documentary explores how the magical world of Sesame Street connected with multiple generations and continues to inspire audiences today. An official selection of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. (Dir. by Marilyn Agrelo, 2021, USA, 107 mins., Not Rated/Recommended for ages 11 and up)
