Medora players and coaches


Medora follows the down-but-not-out Medora (Indiana) Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of a season, capturing their stories both on and off the court. Riding a brutal losing streak when the film begins, the team’s struggle to compete bears eerie resemblance to the town’s fight for survival. An in-depth, deeply personal look at small town life, the documentary is also a thrilling, underdog basketball story and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them. While the film follows this particular team in this particular place, ultimately Medora is a film about America and the thousands of small towns across the country facing the same fight.


The screening will be held in the auditorium of William F. Laman Public Library, 2801 Orange Street, North Little Rock. A panel discussion will follow the film. Additional information is available by calling AETN at 800-662-2386 or visiting
