WHEN GUMMO MEETS HOOSIERS

+

I have been a long time fan and associate of Davy Rothbart and his work on Found, This American Life, among other projects, and recently had the pleasure of attending the screening for his most recent project which is a documentary titled Medora. The movie captures so many elements, its tuff for me to dwindle down into a few words (hence my title for a brief synopsis)...and that may be because they had over 600 hours of footage and broke it down to a beautiful 80 minute take on the trials and tribulations of a few select boys soon to be men, a broken small town, and basketball. The movie was produced by Steve Buscemi, but has a full slate of well known and unknown creative types to make it happen. Davy and his co-director Andrew Cohn are on tour right now screening their project at cities across the US. Originally it was going to show everywhere but since I believe the list has dwindled. They'll be at the Music Box in Chi., on Dec 5th. if youre interested, and if its not coming to a locale near you, I believe you can watch it on/through their site. I give it two snaps and a rewind.
