Sundance 2018: Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Jan 22, 2018

Monday, we kick off our Sundance Film Festival with the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Director Morgan Neville joins us to talk about the life and philosophy of television icon Fred Rogers.

Who doesn’t remember Mr. Rogers and trips to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe? In a new documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, director Morgan Neville explores the life and philosophy of the television icon. It was Fred Rogers’ wife Joanne who told Neville not to make Fred out to be a saint in the film because he wasn’t. But he was a person who respected children and built a career with love “at the root of everything.” Morgan Neville joins us to talk about Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
