Sea Urchins

Les oursins

France, 1954
Documentary, Short


The film shows a transparent urchin, into which gelatin, now hardened, had previously been injected, revealing to us its mouth, its Aristotle lamp and other details, like the stems ending in suckers which spread far and wide, thus enabling the urchin to move.
