MEDORA @ The Harrison Center Gym
Friday, July 19, 2013 from 9:30 PM to 11:30 PM (EDT)
Join us as we take the festival out of the theater and into the great spaces of Indianapolis. On Friday, July 19 we will be screening MEDORA at The Harrison Center Gym.
MEDORA follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of the 2011 season, capturing the players’ stories both on and off the court. The Hornets were riding a brutal losing streak when we arrived, and the team’s struggle to compete bears eerie resonances with the town’s fight for survival.
Medora is an in-depth, deeply personal look at small-town life, a thrilling, underdog basketball story, and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them. On a grander scale, it’s a film about America, and the thousands of small towns across the country facing the same fight. As one towns-person told us, “Once we lose these small towns, we can't get them back."
