Butterfly Rising
Butterfly Rising
Tanya Wright, 2011, 94 min.
Butterfly Rising is the story two women--Rose Johnson and Lilah Belle--who steal a vintage truck and set out on the open road to meet the magical medicine man, Lazarus of the Butterflies. A decidedly indie-style film with a "vintage" feel, Butterfly Rising deals with universal themes that cross race, sex and class boundaries; it's potent, human message has a positive story about love, pain and loss as these two women embark on a fated road trip to the City of Newhope. Written, directed and starring Tanya Wright (HBO's True Blood). Ms. Wright is also the author of the book, Butterfly Rising.
