ACERA, OR THE WITCHES' DANCE

Acera, ou Le Bal des sorcières

Trailer
Directed by Jean Painlevé, Geneviève Hamon
France, 1972
Documentary, Short, Avant-Garde

Synopsis

In mud flats along the coast of Brittany we watch acera, small ball-shaped mollusks that are about two inches in diameter. They rest in mud; then, in water, their skirt-like hood dances as they spin and spin. The film also details the mollusks’ ritual mating habits.
