Summary
This film examines the Egyptian rural craft of making a sieve called ghurbal (from the Arabic ghurbal meaning "to winnow" which is used to both "winnow" babies on their seventh day of life and to winnow grains for making ceremonial dishes, particularly kouskousi). Embedded in this material culture artifact are layered meanings of creative regeneration of the cosmic and human worlds
