MEDORA is a documentary premier at SXSW Film Festival this year.
Medora follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets, capturing the players’ stories on and off the court as they seek to avoid another winless season in the small town of Medora Indiana, where Basketball is a metaphor for hope. The film is executive produced by Steve Buscemi and Stanley Tucci’s Olive Productions.
In Indiana, where life revolves around high school basketball, what happens to a community when their beloved team can no longer win a single game? Years ago, Medora was a booming rural community with a thriving middle class.
The factories and farms have since closed, the population has dwindled, and the school faces consolidation. “Medora” follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets, capturing the players’ stories on and off the court as they seek to avoid another winless season. ”
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 brutal odds stacked against them. Directed by Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart
