Available Light Cinema -Street Gang How We Got to Sesame Street

Available Light Cinema: Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street

In the late 1960s, as the US was rocked by dissent and social change, a socially conscious media executive working in the fledgling world of public television was presented with a challenge: could she create a children’s show that would “master the addictive qualities of television and do something good with them”?

Street Gang introduces us to the people (and the Muppets!) who entertained and educated children like never before. The result was one of the most influential and enduring children’s programs in television history. – Hot Docs IDFF

Dir. Marilyn Agrelo 107 min, 2021, USA

“The behind-the-scenes footage, much of it shot in the early 80s, is priceless; the contemporaneous interviews with Jim Henson, director Jon Stone and producer Joan Ganz Cooney are invaluable.” – Norm Wilner, Now Magazine
