The translucent, pulsating body of the moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) presents a choreography of white veils communicating through slight touches. The moon jelly differs from other jellyfish in that it does not have long, stinging tentacles, which may be one reason why Arthur Miller compared mankind to how they float in the incoming and outgoing tide. This hand-developed film pays homage to the poetic popular science films of Jean Painlevé.
