DOCUTAH International Documentary Film Festival is proud to collaborate with SUNDANCE INSTITUTE to present a FREE Community Screening of
Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
Directed by Morgan Neville
This is the story of Mr. Rogers, the unlikely television star, who came into our homes and helped us through childhood. “A balm of kindness and empathy in divisive times.” Entertainment magazine.
Fred Rogers used puppets and play to explore complex social issues: race, disability, equality, and tragedy, helping form the American concept of childhood. He spoke directly to children and they responded enthusiastically. Yet today, his impact is unclear. Have we lived up to Fred’s ideal of good neighbors?
Screening Followed by a Q&A with producer Nicholas Ma.
