Through Our Eyes

A sensitive and affecting four-part docuseries from Sesame Workshop uses children’s voices and perspectives to bring some of today’s most pressing issues into focus. For Sesame, it’s a shift from producing for children to telling stories about young people for children and adults to watch together. The 30-minute segments deal with the effect on children of incarcerated parents, on being homeless, on being uprooted and displaced by weather-related disasters caused by climate change, and on having a parent wounded during military service and relying on caregiver support. In each instance, the resilience of the younger generation is enough to give anyone hope.
