Stickelback Eggs

Oeufs d'épinoche

Directed by Jean Painlevé
France, 1929
Documentary, Short


An educational film, a movie through a microscope, in two parts. Within minutes after the egg drops in the water, fertilization occurs and contractions start. Soon, in a fertilized egg, we see the germinal disc divide into two blastomeres.
