New Independent Film Soars Above Expectations

Chicago filmmaker Mark Harris is learning that good things come to those who wait.

His long awaited film, "Black Butterfly", just hit #29 on the Walmart Best Seller's List. 

It is a feat that many peers of Mr. Harris might envy. Breaking into the movie industry as an independent filmmaker can be a formidable task for some. But the 39 year old screenwriter/director/producer managed to pull it off.

"The stunning and unprecedented success of the DVD is proof that there is a large appetite for films featuring great storytelling without using recognizable talent," Harris explained. 

The film stars newcomers Mahogany Monae, Richard Gallion, Keeland Ellis and Lionel Gentle.

The cast, as well as Mr. Harris, will appear at a DVD signing on April 14, 2012 inside Blockbuster Video (1303 N. Milwaukee Ave.)
