Win a Pair of Tix to See the Award-Winning Documentary Medora

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Medora sounds like a pretty amazing documentary. It’s been called the “best sports film since hoop dream”. That’s some big praise!

Anyways, we’ve got 2 pairs of tickets to giveaway. The showing is on November 18th at the Roxy Theater in SF. Here’s a quick rundown on what the film is about. If you just can’t contain yourself, you can buy tickets here. Otherwise enter to win after the description of the movie. Good luck!

In Indiana, where life revolves around high school basketball, what happens to a community when their beloved team can no longer win a single game? Years ago, Medora was a booming rural community with a thriving middle class. The factories and farms have since closed, the population has dwindled, and the school faces consolidation.

Medora follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets, capturing the players’ stories on and off the court as they seek to avoid another winless season. Medora is an in-depth, deeply personal look at small-town life, a thrilling, underdog basketball story, and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite brutal odds stacked against them.

Sounds dope right? Enter to win below:
