Shrimp Stories

Histoires de crevettes

France, 1964
Documentary, Short, Avant-Garde

Synopsis

After a comic introduction, we look closely at a shrimp. Eyes on stilts, color patterns, pinchered walking feet, a rostrum. We watch shrimp eat using a strong claw and a fine one; we watch digestion. After eating, shrimp clean themselves.
