Cicada is a Sci-Fi short film adapted from the stage play “Cicada”, created by James D. Gavins & Karl Michael Iglesias. Through storytelling, music, movement, and comedy, we follow James as he goes through the process to receive his reparations.
“In a parallel universe, they have decided to give out Reparations. We follow James, who has been chosen to beta test a psychotherapy simulator that will ease the trauma from black history in America called Cicada.”
