About Bogalusa Charm

Runtime: 83 minutes

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.
