Medora

The sports drama is a subgenre that audiences eat up at least once every single year. And while most of those films exist as feature film narratives, every now and then those kinds of stories come from real people in the form of documentaries. One such story is Medora, which follows a high school basketball team in a small town that was once a booming rural community with prosperous farms, an automotive parts factory, a brick plant, and a thriving middle class, but now the residents say, "This town's on the ropes." But the triumph of their team, in the middle of a terrible losing streak, just might give them the little bit of hope they need. Now we have the trailer for the documentary which everyone can relate to in some way. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart's Medora, originally from Yahoo:

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. On a grander scale, it’s a film about America, and the thousands of small towns across the country facing the same fight. Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart direct the documentary which premiered at SXSW this year, hits theaters in New York & Los Angeles on November 8th, then everywhere November 12th.

    As someone who grew up 15 minutes from Medora, and drives through it about once a year now, I can honestly say it is a sad and downtrodden town. When I was little, I remember it being a very clean, charming town, but it seems to get worse with each passing year. I hope this film gives the town some sort of sense of pride and encourages them to turn things around. I look forward to watching this.

    Sports has always been a part of my life, I love it so much. Look at the photos and read the line I found myself sharing a lot of regret.

    Sad this is what we've become. Guess this is what happens when you send jobs overseas, invest in military over education, and let the rich buy our government.

    If this was an 80's film, they'd win. The reality looks a little different, will look this oot.
