One Day in April is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the triumphs and failures of two men’s and two women’s collegiate cyclist teams trying to win the Little 500. Directed by filmmaker and native Hoosier Thomas Miller, “One Day in April” is a bittersweet portrait of athletic competition in its purest, unadulterated form. . Shot in an intimate cinema verite style that highlights the struggles and failures of four teams of riders in the Little 500, the expansive narrative of friendship, failure, and redemption plays out across a cast of characters that includes grizzled veterans, rookies trying to find their spot and coaches who work hard and remain devoted to the Little 500.. At a time when collegiate athletics is navigating an increasingly uncomfortable intersection of profit and competition, the Little 500 remains an example of pure sport in America’s heartland. Through the stories of the men and women who make up the Little 500 community, “One Day in April” is a testament to the virtue that sports can demonstrate and the role they play in forging kinships rarely savored otherwise..
