Dating back to 1926, The State Theatre Center for the Arts is known far and wide as a historic landmark and a center for community and global performances. In the 1980s, however, the building was threatened with demolition – until a group of concerned Eastonians calling themselves “Friends of the State Theatre” stepped in to save it. Relying on the support of the community they called home, Friends of the State Theatre raised enough money to not only purchase the building, but to renovate it completely. The preservation and restoration of the historic State Theatre became a larger metaphor for the preservation of downtown Easton itself. In essence, “it’s not about how to save a theatre – it’s about why.”

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 kids lit— 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 fairy tales. Through rare archival, untapped insights, and stop-motion paper animation, we also come to understand why classics such as “Goodnight Moon,” “Where the Wild Things Are,” “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” and “The Snowy Day” changed the art form and stand the test of time.
