“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”
Wednesday, June 6, 2018
For over thirty years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Fred and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn’t been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before and there hasn’t been since.
Though he may be best known today as a soft-spoken, cardigan-wearing children’s television host, in reality, Fred Rogers’ career represents a sustained attempt to present a coherent, beneficent view about how we should best speak to children about important matters and how television could be used as a positive force in our society.
Join Heartland Film for a special sneak preview of Truly Moving Picture Award winner “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” from Focus Features and Academy Award-winning Director Morgan Neville. “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” Archivist Tim Lybarger will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion!
