Embryonic Development - The Chick

Canada, 1953 (MIFF 1954, Science and Nature)

Director: J. V. Durden

An instructional film using, among other devices, diagrams and time &ndash: lapse cinemicrography to tell the story of the embryology of the chick. The recapitulation sequences provide, within the space of three to four minutes, one of the most brilliant examples of the scientific film's possibilities.
