Event Details


a film by Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart

Medora,  follows the down-but-not-out Medora (Indiana) Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of a season, capturing their stories both on and off the court. Riding a brutal losing streak when the film begins, the team’s struggle to compete bears eerie resemblance to the town’s fight for survival. An in-depth, deeply personal look at small town life, Medora is also a thrilling, underdog basketball story and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them. While the film follows this particular team in this particular place, ultimately Medora is a film about America, and the thousands of small towns across the country facing the same fight. As one resident observes, “Once we lose these small towns, we can’t get them back.” Directed by Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart, Medora premieres on Independent Lens on Monday, March 31, 2014, 10:00-11:30 PM ET on PBS (check local listings).
