Third Fridays at the Full Frame Theater: Free Screening of “Medora,” November 15

Still from Davy Rothbart and Andrew Cohn’s “Medora”

Wrapping up this year’s Full Frame Documentary Film Festival‘s Third Friday series is the acclaimed feature documentary Medora, directed by Davy Rothbart and Andrew Cohn. The 2011 Medora Hornets high school basketball team was riding an epic losing streak when the filmmakers arrived, and the players’ struggle to compete bears eerie resonances with the Indiana 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 odds stacked against it. Watch the trailer below.
