Filmed across unfolding seasons, Eileen–a young, solitary maverick–forges a life among the discarded remnants and lingering memories of a desert ghost town called Cisco. A queer slice of the contemporary American West, Cisco Kid* is both a portrait of a person who has walked away from mainstream society, and a place that has been left behind by a changing world.
*Followed by a “Sean Dorsey Dance: Dreaming Trans and Queer Futures”, a powerful 10-minute documentary profile of trailblazing transgender choreographer and activist Sean Dorsey, his choreography and activism (dir. by Lindsay Gauthier).
Presented as part of San Francisco Documentary Festival 2023.
