Louisiana indie film I Always Do My Collars First to air on LPB Wed, March 12, about 8:20 pm

Allison Bohl and Connie Castille have a hit in their first film; it's about Cajun women and their ironing and is called I Always Do My Collars First.

It will air on LPB Wed, Mar 12, about 8:20 pm, says Al Bohl.

Castille is from Breaux Bridge; co-director and cinematographer Bohl was raised in Bossier City. She's the daughter of illustrator and SciPort artist Al Bohl. He says of the film, "It deals with the domestic lives of four Cajun women. It is positive, uplifting and funny."
