Summary "El Moulid (birth) refers to a public religious festival celebrating the life and legacy of a holy person. This film vividly captures the festival and religious mood of the very popular seven-hundred-year-old Moulid .. in Tanta, Egypt during cotton harvest ... It culminates in a dramatic procession of drummers on camels, a Sufi parade, workers representing medieval vocational guilds, and finally newly circumcised boys in horse carriages.
