Acera, or The Witches' Dance

Acera, ou Le Bal des sorcières

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, they dance, their skirt-like hood spreading like a dervish’s cassock. They spin and spin.
