A feature-length documentary telling the story of Reading Rainbow.  The film explores the legendary 80s television program hosted by LeVar Burton that has been notably recognized as a classroom staple. BUTTERFLY IN THE SKY chronicles the journeys of a handful of broadcasters, educators, filmmakers, and one incredible host who believed television could inspire a lifelong love of reading.


Butterfly in the Sky is a heartfelt, beautiful celebration of one of the most influential educational children's programs to grace our television.
Ethan Anderton, Slashfilm
Butterfly in the Sky shows love and honesty about the show's 26-year battle to stay on air, and why every generation needs their Reading Rainbow.
