Through miniature puppets, we follow the lives of the Cicadas as they come out of the ground for the party at the end of their lives.
Cicada Princess is a short film based on a children's book by the same title, both written and produced by Mauricio Baiocchi (Mauchi) with illustrations and character designs by Steve Ferrera.
Through miniatures and puppets, we follow the lives of the Cicadas emerging from the ground where they have been waiting as grubs for sixteen years. The Cicadas gather for the grand ball at the castle, knowing that when the sun rises their lives will come to an end.
