Image from the 1954 Indiana state basketball tournament.

Special guests from Milan are scheduled to be present.


See meticulously restored versions of the two classic Indiana state high-school games that inspired Hoosiers! The film Hoosiers tells a fictionalized story of a high-school basketball team from the small town of Milan, Ind., that became a national phenomenon. Less well known is the fact Indiana University filmed the actual semi-final and final games featuring the team’s victories. Indianapolis-based film archivist Eric Grayson will present his restorations of the films of these two games, which he painstakingly restored from aging, deteriorating prints. (2K DCP Presentation)
