Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Sponsored by: Yale Film Study Center

Join the Yale Film Study Center and CPTV for a free screening and discussion of WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?, the latest acclaimed documentary from Oscar-winner Morgan Neville.

For over thirty years, the unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer, and producer Fred Rogers was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, Fred and his cast of puppets and friends taught the country enduring lessons about how we should best talk to children about important matters and how television could be used as a positive force in our society.

Panelists:
* Carla Horwitz, Lecturer, Yale Child Study Center, Education Studies Program, and Department of Psychology
* Paul Pfeffer, Director of Education, Connecticut Public Broadcasting

Featuring upcoming documentaries from the Peabody Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Indie Lens Pop-up is presented in Connecticut by the Yale Film Study Center, CPTV, and PBS’s Independent Lens.
