For over 30 years, Fred Rogers was beamed daily into homes across America where he and his cast of puppets and friends spoke simply and directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues. There wasn't anything like Mr. Rogers on TV before and there hasn’t been since. In Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville looks back on Rogers’ radical legacy of love and kindness. 

Available for the 2018 - 2019 Indie Lens Pop-Up season
