Tanya Wright, 2010, 94 min.
Butterfly Rising is the story of two unlikely women (the town seductress Rose Johnson and grief-stricken singer Lilah Belle) who steal a vintage truck and set out on the open road to meet the legendary Lazarus of the Butterflies. Motivated in part by the death of her younger brother, Tanya also authored the book of the same name.
Tanya Wright plays the role of Crystal Burset on Orange is the New Black and Deputy Kenya Jones in True Blood. Butterfly Rising is her directorial debut (which she also wrote, produced and starred in).
Post screening Q&A with director Tanya Wright and book signing to follow.
