Pima County Public Library in partnership with Arizona Public Media and Community Cinema presents Now Showing at Your Library, which features screenings of films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS Series, Independent Lens.
Medora, Indiana 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.
