Medora official trailer 1 2013 documentary hd

Medora is a 2013 documentary film by Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart about a small town basketball team based in Medora, Indiana, called the Medora Hornets, the town's 70-students high school basketball team which is on a losing streak of many seasons, just unable to keep up with larger schools in the area league, much as Medora itself struggles to barely survive.

The directors were initially interested in the team after an article in The New York Times about the team. For the full season 2010-2011, they took more than 600 hours of footage about the team and the lives and struggles of its team members. The post-production costs were financed through the crowdfunding site Kickstarter. The 82-minute resulting documentary has been released in November 2013.
