'Raised on Rice and Gravy' made by Bossier City native

Remember Allison Bohl, who made "I Always Do My Collars First" with Conni Castille? Their short documentary about ironing and Cajun culture in French Louisiana played at the New Orleans Film Festival last year and garnered some pretty nice attention.

I remember hearing a clip from it on public radio's "American Routes." (Trust me: If it makes Nick Spitzer's list, it's worth your time.)

Bohl and Castille have made another flick about Louisiana life and culture. This time around, they're focusing lunch plate houses. The doc is called "Raised on Rice and Gravy," and it looks pretty neat. Check out the preview above.

Looks delish! I want Allison to come home and make movies about SB Land. To quote Binx Bolling in Walker Percy's The Moviegoer " ...when a person lives somewhere...the place is not certified for him...But if he sees a movie which shows his very neighborhood, it becomes possible for him to a person who is Somewhere and not Anywhere."

I want to see this film so badly, it's crazy. Allison and Conni are an awesome team.
