Won’t You Be My Neighbor? runs from Monday, August 13 thru Wednesday, August 15th. It screens Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Stage Theatre.
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 spent three decades hosting his PBS show, answering kids’ questions that other entertainers wouldn’t, including week-long episodes on death and divorce. 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 whose compassionate and imaginative work has enriched generations.
From the Critics:
“This documentary is a touching, triumphant tribute to Fred Rogers, a remarkable man who reminded generations of young children that they mattered and that they were loved.”
In these troubled times, it's a good feeling to see a funny, touching and vital doc that is both timely and timeless.
