Join us for a film that looks at a down-but-not-out varsity basketball team as it struggles to compete parallel the town's own fight for survival.
WXXI's Community Cinema series is pleased to present Medora, followed by a group discussion, on Monday, March 31, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the Little Theatre. A once-booming rural community with a thriving middle class has seen its factories and farms close as the population dwindles. A deeply personal look at small-town life, Medora follows a down-but-not-out varsity basketball team as it struggles to compete parallel the town's own fight for survival.
WXXI's Community Cinema series features films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series, Independent Lens. The screenings, held at the Little Theatre (240 East Avenue, Rochester, NY), will be followed by lively panel discussions to encourage dialogue and action around important and timely social issues. These events are free, open to the public, and reservations are not required.
Community Cinema is presented by ITVS and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American people with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
