Audience Reviews for The World According to Sesame Street
A view of Sesame Street that we don't see...the creation of adaptations for world markets. This isn't a case of American corporate domination but rather the attempt to ensure that certain values about child education are prized world wide. Very interesting.
Beh. I admire Sesame for what they're doing, and this movie did tug at my heartstrings, but it was SO self-important. Yes, Kosovar children need to be taught how to not hate, but a segregated children's show is not likely to be the way to do it. Whenever they started talking about cultural imperialism, my ears perked up, because that was my big interest in seeing this movie. However, it was always brought up to be immediately dismissed. *shrugs* Oh well.
Pretty interesting documentary. I guess I never thought about all of the complex socio-political issues that need to be taken into account when developing children's television in foreign countries.
