Including a Q&A with Co-Directors Matthew Fifer, Kieran Mulcare, co-writer Sheldon D. Brown, and producer Jeremy Truong after the film's credits. This screening is presented in partnership with ATXGFL.

After a string of unsuccessful and awkward encounters with women, Ben goes “back on the dick” (as his sister enthusiastically exclaims). CICADA follows Ben as he comes out to the world and develops an intense relationship with Sam, a man of color struggling with deep wounds of his own. As the summer progresses and their intimacy grows, Ben ultimately gains the strength to face a childhood trauma he has long suppressed.
