Won't You Be My Neighbor?

"An eye-opening portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination." - NY Times

For over thirty years, Fred Rogers entertained, educated, and nurtured children and adults alike with his seminal public television show Mister Roger's Neighborhood. With a gentle mixture of discussion, song, and low-fi puppetry, Rogers taught love and kindness to generations, becoming a unique mainstay of American television.

This new documentary from 20 Feet From Stardom director Morgan Neville explores and celebrates the life and legacy of Mister Rogers. Through archival footage and interviews, it chronicles Rogers' inauspicious origins, as well as his show's growth into a major cultural force that somehow managed to keep its humility.

Fresh from the Sundance Film Festival, Won't You Be My Neighbor comes when Rogers’ lessons are needed more than ever. In a divided world, we could use someone who so deftly broke down barriers, teaching kids about death, divorce, civil rights, and more. Don your cardigan, put on your slippers, and re-experience the joy of Mister Rogers with Won't You Be My Neighbor. - Alamo
