    Educational film showing a primitive irrigation system.

  • Description

    British Instructional Films Ltd presents a Classroom Film.

    Rural landscape. Two cows (or water buffalo?) pull a primitive mill wheel as they walk in a circle. C/U of two cogs of the wheel interlocking. A water wheel which has many small pots attached moves around and water pours out of each pot as they reach the top of the circle. This water seems to flow down a channel towards a crop field. A primitive irrigation system. The Sakia may be a tribe of people?
