BiographyEdit

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 French 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 considered training 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.
