The Eric Carle Museum, Film

May 9 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Story & Pictures By is the first feature documentary to take audiences behind the scenes to meet the boundary pushers who create children’s picture books. The film follows Christian Robinson, Yuyi Morales, and Mac Barnett—the stars of the new “golden age” of children’s literature—as they create experimental work that reflects the mysteries of childhood, champions the marginalized, and provides children with windows and mirrors, even when the creators’ own lives are not fairytales. Through rare archival, untapped insights, and stop-motion paper animation, we also come to understand why classics such as Goodnight MoonWhere the Wild Things AreThe Very Hungry Caterpillar, and The Snowy Day changed the art form and stand the test of time.

Film starts at 6:30 pm. The museum will open at 5:30 for ticketholders to view the galleries and enjoy light refreshments. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
