“A moving, incisive portrait of an unheralded artist and a subtle glimpse into issues of race, media, and culture.”~Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix

Aroview: The inspiring story of Kevin Clash, the man and voice behind Sesame Street's most popular character is uniquely documented in this delightful film.

From humble and extremely unlikely beginnings as an African-American boy in 60's Baltimore County, Clash's story is one of success in business and career satisfaction as well as being a testament to an artist who discovered a special character by being true to himself. Like the Elmo character, this is pure heart and sure to cement a smile. Narrated by Whoopi Goldberg.
