Uta Briesewitz (born 1 September 1967, Leverkusen, Germany) is a German cinematographer and film director.[1] She is known for her collaborations with film director Brad Anderson.


Briesewitz was born in Leverkusen, Germany. She was exposed to film at an early age, watching them on German television, eventually cultivating a preference for Nouvelle Vague and Italian cinema.[2] In an interview, she recounted that Francois Truffaut's Day for Night, The Story of Adele H and The Man Who Loved Women, were some of the films that made strong impressions on her as a child.[3] Later, Briesewitz initially considered to be a painter but decided it was too isolated as a career.[2]

She had an internship with a German television company before she applied and completed a cinematography program at AFI Conservatory.[3]

In 2007 she won a Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards in the category Kodak Vision award.
