Ashé Cultural Arts Center - 1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., NOLA
Free and open to the public
Directed by Andrew Cohn and Davy Rothbart, Medora hits the screen at Ashé Cultural Arts Center.
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? Medora follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of the 2011 season, capturing their stories both on and off the court. Riding a brutal losing streak when the film begins, the team's struggle to compete bears eerie resemblance to the town's fight for survival. An in-depth, deeply personal look at small town life, Medora is also a thrilling, underdog basketball story and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them. After the film, stick around for the thought provoking talkback. For more information, contact Drena S. Clay at (504) 569-9070.

Joe W. and D.D. Brown Special Exhibit Gallery and Solomon Victory Theater
Would you dare to defend your nation while others like you, possibly even your own family, are confined behind barbed wire within that same nation for reasons of ancestry alone? More than 33,000 Japanese Americans did just that. A new special exhibit at The National WWII Museum will showcase some of their stories.
From Barbed Wire to Battlefields: Japanese American Experiences in WWII includes artifacts, oral histories and stark images depicting the hardships faced by those Americans of Japanese ancestry suspected of sympathizing with the enemy and discriminated against because of their heritage. The exhibit will also honor the heroics of those Japanese Americans who overcame adversity and helped to secure American victory on the battlefields.
