Won’t You Be My Neighbor
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? will have its World Premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Mr. Rogers had a job to do and he done his job well for many years and has been an icon in the television industry for decades. He was a television celebrity and love is the important lesson for all kids to learn because it is at the root of everything we know. Love or the lack of it helps shape us into the people we are and watching Mr. Rogers on the screen you felt the love no matter what age you were. The set was simple and the lessons were just as simple because he wanted everyone to be the best neighbor he or she could be. That’s a pretty powerful statement when you think about it.
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 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.
