DCTV Presents MEDORA
Thursday, March 6th, 7pm
DCTV, 87 Lafayette St, NYC 10013
Join us for a free preview screening of Medora, which has been dazzling critics and audiences alike at acclaimed festivals such as SXSW, Full Frame and Sarasota. This feature doc follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of the 2011 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.
Following the screening we'll be joined by Director/Editor/Producer and founder of FOUND Magazine, Andrew Cohn, for a Q&A. Co-presented with Community Cinema.
