Deposited in HSFA in 2006 by Institut für den Wissenschaftlichen Film (IWF) Wissen und Medien gGmbH via the Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) Audio-visual Services, which possessed the film prints as the American Distributor for the IWF Encyclopaedia Cinematographica. Films were made by various German anthropologists for inclusion in the Institut für den Wissenschaftlichen Film (IWF) Encyclopaedia Cinematographica. Film prints of the Encyclopaedia Cinematographica were distributed in North America by Penn State Audio-Visual Services under an agreement with IWF. When Penn State Audio-Visual Services effectively closed in 2005, the film prints were offered to the Human Studies Film Archives. The HSFA agreed to accept all the ethnographic film titles in the Encyclopaedia Cinematographica. Since Penn State had no rights to the prints, HSFA negotiated an agreement with IWF Wissen und Medien gGmbH.
16 mm film prints.
Edited film: shows the procedures involved in producing a box-like basket from palm leaf veins. A Fellahin in the province of Beni Suef cuts branches from a palm tree, and the branches are taken by camel to the work area. The stems and veins are stripped of leaf material, cut into suitable pieces, and worked together in order to form a basket.
