About the Film

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man we all think we know, the film takes viewers beyond the button-up cardigans and the land of make-believe into the heart of a creative genius whose public television show inspired millions of children with compassion and limitless imagination. While the nation changed around him, Fred Rogers stood firm in his beliefs about the importance of protecting childhood. Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville pays tribute to this legacy with the latest in his series of highly engaging, moving documentary portraits of essential American artists.
