Does anyone know what film stocks are used in Eastern Block countries ?
I think Kodak is available, but not sure what else they use...

Specifically, i was wondering what Bela Tarr's Damnation was shot with.
I couldn't find any info on the Web.

Hi Angeliki, I should have told you I know that Damnation was shot with different stocks but mostly kodak, unfortunately I do not know more than that!

I was at the Hungarian Film Laboratories a year ago or so doing 3 35mm blow ups for 3 short films (20min films) in 2 of them I was the DOP, the grading women (Jodit Zep) has told me that they shoot both in Kodak and Fuji like everybody else? and that in the last years more and more production use Fuji because its looks great and it is cheaper then Kodak.
So I think its safe to say that in the last 20 years (more or less) this is what they are using, she also told me that she is a big fan of Bela T'arr films:-)

The Soviets had their own filmstock, not sure what it was called though (Sovocolor?), but it wasn't very good. In Tarkovsky's diary he mentions that they are hoping to get Kodak filmstock, instead of the Soviet one.

Hungary and Poland usually used Eastman color negative. The Poles printed on ORWO.

There would have benn Agfa or ORWO color in the 50s.
& Forte fim is manufactured in Hungary. It's feasible they were manufacturing B/W MP stock in the 50s and 60s.

I have read in an interview, which I posted a link to somewhere else in this forum, that Bela Tarr shoots on kodak stocks. But in the case of the Werkmeister's Harmonies, he shot on different stocks, not just Kodak, also cheaper stocks... which he did not name.

Werkmeister's Harmonies was a lot contrastier.
That is why I like Damnation better.
