SummaryThe Seattle Public Library, in partnership with the SIFF and the Apex Foundation, are pleased to provide a complimentary screening of the acclaimed documentary, 'Won’t You Be My Neighbor.'
DescriptionThe film, directed by Academy Award Winner Morgan Neville, presents the heartwarming life of Fred Rogers, whose cherished PBS series used cardigans, puppets, and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe to imaginatively and compassionately inspire children, while not shying away from complicated issues.

The evening will include a special appearance and Q&A with Nicholas Ma, a producer of the film. A writer, director and producer based in New York City, Mr. Ma is currently in development on a documentary series on diplomacy. Beyond his film projects, he regularly consults for artistic figures and organizations. He left McKinsey & Company in 2013, where he led large-scale transformations of public and private entities. Previously, he worked for then-Senator John Kerry, overseeing his global economic portfolio on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He is a graduate of Harvard College.

This filmmaker appearance and screening is part of programming to honor the legacy of Mr. Rogers. The Library is welcoming Maxwell King, author of the new biography The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers, on October 29.
