Few documentaries focused entirely on one man’s ambitious journey to achieve his dream come off as charming and endearing as Constance Marks’ BEING ELMO: A PUPPETEER’S JOURNEY. The film about the man behind that lovable furry red monster left few eyes dry and all hearts full as the Opening Night screening for this year’s Dallas International Film Festival. The next day, I had the chance to sit down with director Marks and her producer (and husband) James Miller to discuss the film’s star Kevin Clash, his ambition, and why his story needed to be told.
