Film Talks Series – Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
October 27, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
You are cordially invited to the screening of a documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” as part of the ‘Film Talks’ series, which aims to explore various facets of humanity and cultural diversity to enhance our global awareness through films.
ABOUT THE FILM
From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.
The brilliant documentary was nominated for numerous awards, won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary Feature, and was chosen by Time magazine as one of its top ten films of 2018. We are excited to host a screening of this documentary followed by a talk around importance of early childhood education.
