A Spider Builds His Web

Germany (MIFF 1953, Scientific Films)

Typical example of a recent German teaching film, designed for university level. Detailed close-up views of the methods used by the spider, showing the technique of "spot- welding" individual strands of the web.

Experiments on destruction of the web show the repair work undertaken. Finishes with interesting sequence of spider eating the web.
