Lomography B&W Berlin Kino 35mm

Recommended Posts

Described on the Lomography website as:-

A New Black & White Film for Timeless Cinematic Images
Inspired by the New German Cinema sweeping through Berlin in the 1960s, this film is extracted from a roll of cine film produced by a legendary German company that has been changing the face of cinema since the early 1900s. Originally used to make moody monochrome movies, its gorgeous black and white tones lend a timeless effect to cinematic scenes.

Any guesses as to the source?

Almost certainly ORWO N74 (ISO 400) motion picture neg film, given the hints: cine film; German-made; still in production; from a company dating to "the early 1900s."

ORWO is the part of Agfa (founded 1909) that ended up in East German hands after WW2, and by agreement, could only use the "Agfa" name behind the Iron Curtain. And therefore created the ORWO brand name in 1964 to sell their products in the rest of the world. After German reunification, they have bounced around from owner to owner, retaining their independence from Agfa (a good thing, since Agfa itself is kaput).


Filmotec/ORWO makes seven films for motion-picture use, but only two are for camera shooting (the other being UN54 - ISO 100) - the others are "production" films for making film leaders (those count-down numbers and such as a movie starts) or duplicating films for making multiple copies of a movie for distribution.
