Documentary on Cajun life by Bossier fimmaker Allison Bohl to be screened at Centenary College Sat, Mar 10, 6 pm

Documentary filmmaker Allison Bohl will screen and discuss her latest work, I Always Do My Collars First, on Saturday, March 10, at 6:00 PM in Centenary College’s Kilpatrick Auditorium, says Chris Jay. The film, which presents a detailed look at four traditional Cajun families living in Breaux Bridge, LA, has received glowing reviews from Nick Spitzer of National Public Radio’s “American Routes,” and has been accepted for screening on Louisiana Public Broadcasting later this year. This screening is free and open to the public. The film is appropriate for all ages.

Allison is the daughter of Sciport's Al Bohl and Doris Bohl. She grew up in Bossier City. Bohl was named Outstanding Graduate in the College of Arts in 2006 at University of Louisiana Lafayette.

Says Jay, "This film will be of special interest to anyone interested in documentary filmmaking and/or Louisiana’s Cajun heritage."

Kilpatrick Auditorium is inside the Smith Building, near the corner of Woodlawn and King’s Highway.

"American Routes" is not an NPR program. It originates in New Orleans and is distributed by PRI, an NPR competitor which also handles "This American Life" and several other public radio programs. Those two programs air on an NPR "member station" here.

Here's some linkage:

Evidently Allison is a capable singer as well as filmmaker. When I caught her at Tipitina's it was because she was recording tunes, said Dan Garner.

She can also draw like nobody's business.

Triple Threat!

Also, there's going to be a big story about this on Red River Radio Friday morning during Kate Archer's local news segment, which airs at 7:05 and 8:05, usually. I'm not sure exactly what time it will be airing during the membership drive, but it should still be around that time, I imagine.
