Butterfly Rising is Coming to the Oxford Film Festival

February 6, 2012


Tanya Wright is proud to announce that Butterfly Rising will have its Mississippi premiere at the Oxford Film Festival.  She asks that our readers “Like” their Facebook page, for all the latest news on BUTTERFLY RISING https://www.facebook.com/pages/Butterfly-Rising/166995178653 and the COUNTDOWN to their BIG MISSISSIPPI PREMIERE at the Oxford Film Festival on Friday, February 10, at 8:45PM and Sunday, February 12, at 3:15PM @ Malco Studio Cinema (1111 Jackson Avenue West | Oxford, MS 38655). For a full schedule for the Oxford Film Festival, go to http://www.oxfordfilmfest.com/.  The film was shot entirely in Columbus, Mississippi.

To celebrate this important event, Ms. Wright has sent The Real Story 10 autographed copies of her book, Butterfly Rising, to be given away to ten lucky readers.

All you have to do is answer the following ten questions (Hints can be found on our Facebook page) about the movie:

1. There were many great Columbus, MS folks involved in the creation of BUTTERFLY RISING, the first full-length feature film shot in Columbus, MS. What is the name of the Columbus, MS native in the photo? How is he credited in the movie BUTTERFLY RISING?

 2. The title characters, Rose Johnson (played by Tanya Wright) and Lilah Belle (McGhee Monteith), make an agreement that changes the course of their lives and alters their fate in the movie. In what Columbus, MS store was this iconic picture of BUTTERFLY RISING taken? Who is the owner of the store?

 3. Rose and Lilah from BUTTERFLY RISING steal a vintage truck and set out on the open road to meet the mythical, magical Lazarus of the Butterflies. What is the name of the MS native who owns this vintage truck?

 4.  McGhee Monteith (who plays Lilah Belle in BUTTERFLY RISING) finds a pup on her way to Memphis! This dog was a Columbus, MS rescue dog who was only a few months old. What is the name of the dog in the photo? ***By the way, we would LOVE to see our little furry friend again!***

 5.  This scene was taken at a very pivotal point in the movie, BUTTERFLY RISING. What MS native’s porch is this? Hint: this is the first MS location we used to shoot the movie!

 6.  There were lots o’ shenanigans going on in this location, LOL! It is also the place where Lilah Belle (played by McGhee Monteith) meets a stranger…what is the name of this Columbus, MS location?

7.  We were up very late one night shooting BUTTERFLY RISING–the photo shows our cinematographer (Giovanni Digiacomo) setting up a shot with his assistants. On what street is this Columbus, MS lake located?

 8.  Here’s another two-part question! McGhee Monteith (who plays Lilah Belle in BUTTERFLY RISING) is a native of Lake Coromant, MS. In what Academy Award-winning movie did McGhee make her feature film debut? Also, what MS college did McGhee attend? 

 9. What is the name of the owner of the store where these TWO PICTURES are taken from the movie, BUTTERFLY RISING?

 10. What is the name of the owner of this Columbus, MS establishment we used to shoot BUTTERFLY RISING?

 The 10 readers who answer the most questions will win an autographed copy of the publication.

Please send your answers and your mailing address to Butterfly@realstorypublishing.com.  Winners will be announced February 13, 2012.
