WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR
Charmingly soft-spoken and yet powerfully incisive, Fred Rogers was a unique presence on television for generations. Through interviews of his family and colleagues, WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? explores his life as a man who found an important calling to provide an oasis for children in a video sea of violent bombardment.
In the creation of his landmark series, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Rogers experienced a career where his sweet-tempered idealism charmed and influenced the world whether it be scores of children on TV or recalcitrant authorities in government.
However, that beloved personality also hid Rogers' deep self-doubts about himself and occasional misjudgments even as he proved a rock of understanding in times of tragedy for a world that did not always comprehend a man of such noble character.
