Sea Ballerinas

Les danseuses de mer

France, 1960
Documentary, Short


Two kinds of starfish, the brittle and the feather. The brittle star moves its arms alone, without the aid of suckers. Underneath is a single opening. Stalks move food close to the mouth and move waste away. We see vents, used in reproduction and breathing.
