Coffee & Conversation: "Medora" Screening April 20 at The Ross

This season's Coffee & Conversation film and discussion series will conclude with a presentation of "Medora" at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 20, at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center at 313 N. 13th St. in Lincoln. A panel discussion will follow the film.

Medora, Ind., is a once-booming community that's seen its thriving middle class vanish along with its factories and farms as the population dwindles. "Medora" follows the town's varsity basketball team over the course of the 2011 season — on and off the court — documenting how the team's rough losing streak parallels the town's own fight for survival.

An in-depth, personal look at small town life, the film tells the story of the underdog basketball team and the inspiring community that refuses to give up hope.

Coffee & Conversation films are a presentation of NET Television, in partnership with The Ross, Osher Lifelong Learning, the Malone Center, El Centro de las Americas and KZUM.

Find out more about "Medora" and watch the trailer at ITVS Community Cinema.
