Free Community Cinema Documentary: Medora
A once-booming community beset by a crippled economy and a dwindling population is the setting for this documentary following a down-but-not-out varsity basketball team over a season. The team's struggle to compete parallels the town's own fight for survival.
The Independent Television Service (ITVS), PBS SoCal (KOCE-TV) and Soka University of America are pleased to announce the fifth year of the Community Cinema series. The largest public interest outreach program in public or commercial television, Community Cinema features a sneak peek of six documentaries set to broadcast on the award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. Community Cinema, in partnership with Soka University’s Humanities Program and Student Affairs, screens films from October through May.
After the screenings, Community Cinema features panel discussions with community-based organizations, special guest speakers, information, resources, and other programming designed to help our students and community learn more about the issues and get involved. Faculty members are encouraged to incorporate these films in their class curricula.
