The World According to Sesame
Street(12 min)

The World According to Sesame Street explores the drama, challenges
and complexities behind producing international versions of the world's
most-watched children's television program. The film follows
productions in Bangladesh, Kosovo and South Africa and examines
how producers from New York's Sesame Workshop take Sesame Street
as we know it, and localizes it with indigenous songs, puppets and
curricula, all while facing cultural and production challenges in each
country. By the nature of their international work, Sesame Workshop is
forced to deal with the ramifications of being a highly visible American
company working in globally complex political situations.

DIRECTOR, PRODUCER: Linda Goldstein Knowlton, &  Linda Hawkins
