DOCUMENTARY ON ONCE-BOOMING AMERICAN TOWN TO BE SCREENED AT JOHNSON STATE ON APRIL 15
Johnson State College, in collaboration with Vermont Public Television, will host a free screening of the documentary film Medora at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, in the Cinema Room of the college’s Stearns Student Center. A panel discussion will follow the film.
Medora, Ind., is a once-booming community beset by a crippled economy and a dwindling population. This documentary follows the town's down-but-not-out varsity basketball team over a season, capturing the players' stories on and off the court, as the team's struggle to compete parallels the town's fight for survival.
The event is part of PBS’ monthly Community Cinema series, in which free monthly screenings and community discussions of films from PBS’ Emmy Award-winning series “Independent Lens” are held throughout Vermont and the nation.
