Documentary on HS team with 44-game losing streak
Years ago, Medora 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. The population has slowly dwindled to around 500 people. Drug use is common, the school faces consolidation, and as one resident put it, “This town's on the ropes.”
The documentary, Medora, follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of the 2010 – 2011 season, capturing the players’ stories both on and off the court. The Hornets were riding a 44-game losing streak when production started, often playing schools ten to twenty times its size.
