Created by Paris-based cellular biologist Christian Sardet, the “Plankton Chronicles” is a series of wonderfully graphic short films of sea creatures. Those featured are elemental to all plant and animal life. Plankton are microscopic plants, animals, bacteria, viruses, as well as eggs and larvae.

To watch sea creatures on the big screen, come to the Museum of the Moving Image on February 25 for a Science on Screen program featuring underwater films from the 1930s.
