*Q&A with filmmakers Davy Rothbart and Andrew Cohn, & one of the subjects of the film*

NR, 82 minutes

From Davy Rothbart, creator of FOUND Magazine, and Andrew Cohn comes the moving new film MEDORA. The film 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.”

Reviews

“This stellar, incisive slice-of-life doc centers on the kind of crowd-pleasing competition story that lures in audiences and then lays bare heartsick truths …”
-Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

“[A] gently affecting documentary …”
-Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

“It’s utterly impossible not to pull for these boys, or for a film that sees them as complex individuals rather than sociological evidence.”
-Eric Hines, Time Out New York
