If you missed the February broadcast premiere on Nine PBS, please come to the screening of Won’t You Be My Neighbor? on March 27, 7:00 p.m. at Nine Network.
Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, presented by Independent Lens, is an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man we all think we know, the film takes viewers beyond the button-up cardigans and the land of make-believe into the heart of a creative genius whose public television show inspired millions of children with compassion and limitless imagination.
The film from Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville was a critical and popular hit when it ran in theaters last summer. As of press time, it has received the Critics' Choice Documentary Award for Best Documentary and Best Director, the Gotham Awards’ Audience Award, the National Board of Review Award and an Independent Spirit Awards’ nomination for Best Documentary.
