Won't You Be My Neighbor?
A LITTLE KINDNESS MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
For over thirty years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America in his popular television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at Fred Rogers, a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination. There had never been anything like Mister Rogers on television before or since.
However, that beloved personality also hid Rogers' deep self-doubts about himself and occasional misjudgments even as he proved a rock of understanding in times of tragedy for a world that did not always comprehend a man of such noble character.
