Documentary covering emergence of 17 year cicada brood crowdfunding completion

David Rothenberg, author of Bug Music (interviewed on this site last week), is crowdfunding a project with filmmaker Richard Knox Robinson to complete a documentary which brings together two narratives: the story of Tim Blunk, imprisoned for 17 years for the Resistance Conspiracy case, and the emergence of millions of cicadas on the East Coast of the States, following 17 years underground.

The funding Rothenberg and Robinson are asking for will cover the costs of using archival footage from the FBI's press conference which announced Tim Blunk and Susan Rosenberg's arrest. More details on the film, plus a trailer, here.
