PETER DEHART & ALLISON BOHL DEHART : CO-DIRECTORS

Louisiana filmmakers Allison Bohl DeHart and Peter DeHart explore intimacy and legacy, often training their camera on aging, idiosyncratic figures. Through their artistic imprint and design company Makemade, they produce playful, clever and thoughtfully stylized visual works that cast an empathetic lens on their subjects.

The husband and wife team share an intense and enterprising creativity, with an expansive portfolio in the fields of product design, photography, illustration, graphic design, and music.  

Allison won New Orleans Film Festival awards for her work on the short-form documentaries I Always Do My Collars First and Raised on Rice and Gravy, two films that find beauty in the ordinary folkways of south Louisiana.  

Peter is a graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design and a veteran of several film productions.  

Together, the two have produced music videos and concert documentaries that have been featured in Rolling Stone, Flood, and Paste Magazine. They will release Bending Lines, their debut feature documentary, this fall.
