Berlin | City of Film Production

Located on the outskirts of Berlin, Studio Babelsberg is the world’s oldest big movie studio. Founded in 1911, it was the center of German film industry, with huge productions like Fritz Lang’s Metropolis being shot behind its gate. The studio fell into disrepair after the Second World War, but in recent years major capitalization projects have returned the studio to its former glory, with several Focus Features movies, including The Pianist, The Constant Gardener, and Hanna being shot there. David Parkinson takes a look at the studio in “UFA––The Iconic Contradiction.”
