No film of any genre spoke to me like the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? This multi-award winning documentary explores life through historical context, political upheavals, and cultural divides. It asks, ‘Where do we fit into a world of uncertainties, change and division?’

Offered through the seemingly unlikely and unique lens of the legendary Mr Fred Rogers, we discover that his decades of reaching out to children through Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood provided something far more distinct and introspective than simply teaching numbers and colours. Fred Rogers sought to offer anyone who chose to listen (children and adults alike) lessons for life. He addressed concerns about our society and offered critical examinations of who we are, why we are, and how to begin to understand what divides us. Rogers felt that if we explore those questions, we may come to appreciate what should unite us.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a film that offers a voice of hope, compassion, and healing. Wrapped within the unique leadership of a man whose messages are for all ages, races, cultures, and economic classes, we are reminded that these themes are as relevant today as they were 50+ years ago. In our politically charged and socially-manipulated world that seems to be surrounded by misinformation, hate, and anger, it’s possible we could all use a little more of Mr Rogers in our lives. If the leaders of the world (and everyday citizens for that matter) would take the time to view this slice of cinema and commit to the morals exhibited, we’d all be in a much better place.
