In Alsace. Strasbourg and its port. The old houses of the "Little France" neighborhood. The port with its vast basins and powerful engines… receive every year one and a half million tons of carbon which sustain industry in the entire east of France. It feeds a quarter of the country with wheat… transformed into flour on the port itself. Strasbourg exports the potassium hydroxide of Alsace to the Americas. The marshalling yard. How a national fuel is produced. Coal Gas. Using the train method… and special trucks, the coal is transported all the way to the sorting place. It is sorted with a rotating screen… and then delivered for consumption. Zoology. The Octopus. The Octopus is a mollusk that is found in pretty much all oceans. Here is the octopus that is found commonly in the Mediterranean sea. The tentacles are full of suction pads. Here is how it swims. It attacks the lobster, which is for it a true adversary. Making masks. From the original model made from glazed clay, a hollow is made from plaster. Fabric masks are made mechanically… trimmed and bordered by workers. Cardboard masks are molded by hand… by means of paper loaded with glue paste placed inside of the plaster hollow. Here are the masks of two well known artists: M. Harry Pilcer, Mademoiselle Spinelli. Original sports. Here are balancing skills used in an exercise surprising for its originality. A curious way of jumping rope… and walking on a ball.
