This film is one of Ralph Steiner's two meditations on water, the other being Surf and Seaweed. Both films contemplate movement, surface and light with respect to water; cataloguing and classifying types of imagery on black and white film. Considered a "classic" experimental film from 1929.

Original film has a scored soundtrack which is very wonderful. The film is available in a DVD film collection called, "Unseen Cinema", collected experimental works. You can buy this set on Amazon and its well worth it. Many wonderful works.
