The opening night film at this year's Run & Shoot Filmworks Martha's Vineyard African-American Film Festival next month, which runs from August 7 to August 11, Tanya Wright's Butterfly Rising (which she describes as "Thelma + Louise + Magic") is a drama that centers on singer Lilah Belle, who sets out to escape her grief after her brother dies, and embarks on a road trip, but not before coaxing the new-to-town, most scandalous woman in Artesia - Rose Johnson - to go with her. These two broken souls steal a vintage truck and head out on the open road to a fated encounter with the mythical, magical ‘Lazarus of the Butterflies.’ What occurs with the strange man transforms their destinies and binds the women together—forever.
