The Dream and The Silence

"Oriol and Yolanda live in Paris with their two daughters. Oriol is an architect and Yolanda is a teacher. During a holiday at the Ebro River Delta they have an accident that changes their lives." - The Match Factory’s synopsis on The Dream and The Silence, a movie shot with 35 mm ORWO film. The stills from this film look incredible. We will keep you updated on local releases!

ORWO Photography: Old and New

ORWO on film

2012 Brooklyn Film Festival
The festival had a great turnout! ORWO would like to thank Marco Ursino and Susan Mackell of indieScreen in Brooklyn for their support of ORWO film, along with hosting the event in their resplendent and eclectic theater.  We had a great time watching several features, including ‘Dear Mandela’, which was awarded the Grand Chameleon Award at the end of the night’s award ceremony.  Congratulations to directors Dara Kill and Christopher Nizza for receiving a gift certificate for ORWO film along with, of course, the obligatory ORWO commemorative trophy. 
ORWO On Screen

Here are just a few films in the ever-growing list that used ORWO film stock to shoot. Take note of the low-key black and white visual style in ‘The Man from London’. With the use of ORWO black and white film, the audience can feel both the growing intensity and the hidden eroticism through the shadows created with the use of black and white. This style of film is reminiscent of German Expressionist Cinematography that is nearly impossible to capture using any other kind of film stock. ‘The Temptation of St. Tony’, shot on 35 mm ORWO Black and White film, uses surrealism to tell the story of a man struggling with the purpose of life. ‘The Dream and the Silence’ received astounding reviews at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. This film is shot entirely in black and white with only two hints of color for effect.
