Years ago, Medora, Indiana was a booming rural community with prosperous farms, an automotive parts factory, a brick plant, and a thriving middle class. The factories have since closed, crippling Medora's economy and its pride.

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.

"Filmmakers Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart deliver a bleakly potent portrait of life in an economically devastated Middle American town." - Variety

"This gently affecting documentary from Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart ...bears little resemblance to the familiar sports underdog story" - New York Times

"This stellar, incisive slice-of-life doc centers on the kind of crowd-pleasing competition story" - The Village Voice
