For decades Fred Rogers hosted his children’s show, Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, that respected children as intelligent creatures in the making.
From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigan sweater and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with acceptance, compassion, and limitless imagination.
