  • Description

    No title.

    China: a man transfers Vermicelli from one bowl to another. He winds the pasta around a wooden stand for drying. Several wooden rods with Vermicelli hanging from them are attached to a pole with holes in. The pasta is stretched to twice its original length before being hung up.

    Note: this film is in rather poor condition. Although the film is known as "Making Vermicelli" it looks more like noodles to me!
