Story

The sun is rising gently over the Brandenburg Gate, teenagers squint as they emerge from a night of carefree dancing, arm in arm, laughing, swaying, an elderly couple wander slowly towards the Berliner Dom, hand in hand – Berlin Kino B&W Film captures life’s most elusive moments in everlasting monochrome charm.

Berlin Kino B&W Film is the founding member of the Lomography B&W Kino Film Family – our very special collection of multiformat monochromes. Inspired by the New German Cinema sweeping through Europe in the 1960s, our Kino Films are extracted from rolls 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, their gorgeous black and white tones lend a timeless aesthetic to every shot.

Our original Berlin Kino B&W Film was an utter blockbuster, however, as German cinema evolved through time, adapting to meet the innovative spirit of its founding fathers, so did our film formula. Refined and brimming with greater artistic control, the 2019 formula of Berlin Kino B&W Film will imbue your shots with unmistakable cinematic beauty.
