As the editor of FOUND Magazine and a contributor to This American Life, Rothbart is no stranger to telling other people’s stories. But what surprised him about shooting Medora was just how open the community was to the documentary crew’s presence. And he found himself falling in love with his subjects, he says: “We were totally enthralled with this town and the story and these kids and this team.”
Rothbart will present a free screening of Medora in person at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue, tonight at 7 p.m.; a Q&A period follows the film. For more information, go to denverfilm.org or call 720-381-0813.
