  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Ceylon (aka Sri Lanka) - German voiceover.

    Views of a mountain, covered in tropical forest. Europeans in pith helmets walk up hillside past Sri Lankan natives. People make offerings at a small temple. Shots of the men climbing steps up the side of the mountain. Bells are rung at a shrine on the mountain. Pilgrims pray and make their devotions.

    Scenes of a woman being immersed in a pond by two men. One of them prays after the ceremony - not clear whether this is a baptism / christening or some ceremony from another religion.
