Cicada Video Project Shows Why They Are Coolest Insects

Posted By on Mon, Jul 22, 2013 at 3:28 PM

Once monsoon begins in Tucson, so does the constant hum of the cicadas. It's our summer desert soundtrack, just like thunder and the rain against a good tin roof, if you're lucky enough to have a tin roof.

Anyway, when I saw the video for filmmaker Samuel Orr's hour-long documentary on the 17-year lives of cicadas that's part of his funded Kickstarter, I wanted to make sure you got a chance to see it too. It will be released and broadcast on PBS in 2014.
