Scene Screened: 'Raised on Rice and Gravy'

Documentarians Allison Bohl and Conni Castille are bringing their latest project, "Raised on Rice and Gravy," to the Robinson Film Center Saturday.

As part of the monthly Scene Screened dialogue series, I'm hosting post-screening Q&As after each 30-minute screening (5 p.m. and 6 p.m.).

Admission is free so come on down, eat vicariously and ask some questions!

The folk flick profiles lunch plate houses in Lafayette, La. The team's last effort, "I Always Do My Collars First," was an illuminating look at ironing. (Yes, ironing, and it earned them the Louisiana Filmmaker Award at last year's New Orleans Film Festival.)

"Raised on Rice and Gravy" examines the role these lunch places play in local, daily life. It's all about the importance of comfort food, community and amateur food criticism, apparently.

If you go

WHEN: 5 and 6 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 25).
WHERE: Robinson Film Center, 617 Texas St., Shreveport.

I've never in my life left a film so hungry! I went straight to the Southfield Grill.
