Berolina Film

Berolina Film (often shortened to Berolina) was a film production company which operated in West Germany between 1948 and 1964. The film's production was supervised by the experienced Kurt Ulrich and was based in West Berlin.[1] The company helped launch a cycle of popular heimatfilm made in the 1950s.[2]

The companies name is a reference to Berolina, the allegorical female figure representing the city of Berlin. It was also the name of a short-lived company from the 1920s, notable for producing the 1924 film The Hands of Orlac.
