For over 30 years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer, was beamed into homes across America in his beloved show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is from Academy Award® winning filmmaker Morgan Neville of 20 Feet from Stardom (2013) fame.
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at Fred Rogers, America’s favorite neighbor. This documentary is a portrait of a man we think we all know, but this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.
