Won't You Be My Neighbor?

About the Documentary

Filmmaker Morgan Neville takes a closer look at the life of Fred Rogers, the adored host of the popular children's television program, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, which aired for over 30 years. Interviews with his friends, family, and colleagues reveal the purpose behind his work in children's educational television. The documentary explores the impact that Rogers had on his audience, especially the young children who grew up watching his show. Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood addressed many issues that other television shows deemed unsuitable for children's television, like death, divorce, and racism, which made the host stand out from others. Viewers also get to learn more about Rogers' personal life and formative experiences that shaped him.
