Film and Discussion: “Bogalusa Charm”
To commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jaunary 21 American Center hosts a special film showing of «Bogalusa Charm» by Stephen Richardson.
Film Synopsis: Bogalusa Charm is a contemporary portrait of a small Louisiana town created at the site of the world’s largest lumber mill. Captured here in its last days after thirty years, Miss Dixie Gallaspy conducts a charm school for girls in order to teach the young women of Bogalusa the social graces and skills that would guide them into “Ladyhood”. Dixie’s week-long school, in a town confronted with many challenges (including a legacy of racial conflict and financial dissipation), preserves fragments of a world that may already be lost. Director and native son Steve Richardson finds the many charms of this close community and introduces us to the culture and deep conventions that help define life in an isolated but storied place firmly located in the American South.
The rights to screen these films are generously provided by American Film Showcase, a program to bring award-winning contemporary American documentaries, feature films and animated shorts to audiences around the world, offering a view of American society and culture as seen by independent filmmakers. Funded by a grant from the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, the Showcase highlights the value of film in fostering understanding and cooperation, dialogue and debate.
