"A balm of kindness and empathy in these troubled, divisive times." -- Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly

Join us for an evening of sanity and goodwill with this  multi-award-winning documentary. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom) looks back on the legacy of Fred Rogers, focusing on his radically kind ideas.

Though he may be best known today as a soft-spoken, cardiagan-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.

94 minutes, rated PG13
