Indie Film Series | Sunday, October 21, 2018
In partnership with Fritztown Cinema, the Hill Country Film Society and the Film Festival will host a FREE screening on Sunday, October 21 at 5:30 p.m.
WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? is a documentary film about Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer who 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.
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.
