Summary

This is a series of high definition short films revealing a whole range of planktonic organisms collected in the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean during the first year of the Tara schooner oceanic expedition.
Plankton is the multitude of organisms that drift with the currents. They are the origin of our food, fuels and the air we breathe.
