Free Film Screening: Won’t You Be My Neighbor?


Join Illinois State University’s Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning for a free screening of the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? at the Normal Theater!

Following the screening, a panel of faculty members from the Department of Psychology will discuss themes of empathy within the film and answer broader questions of empathy within society.

ABOUT THE MOVIE:
For over thirty years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer 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. There hadn’t been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before and there hasn’t been since.

In Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville looks back on the legacy of Fred Rogers, focusing on his radically kind ideas. While the nation changed around him, Fred Rogers stood firm in his beliefs about the importance of protecting childhood.
