Biography

Alex Berner was born in 1966 in Munich. After training as a graphic designer in London, he edited numerous documentaries, music videos and advertising spots. In 1989, he filmed Inheritance, a musical portrait about a multi-cultural rock band in the USA.

He then returned to Germany and made the trailers to such films as Bille August’s "The House of Spirits", Doris Doerrie’s "Happy Birthday!" ("Happy Birthday Tuerke!") and Soenke Wortmann’s "Maybe…Maybe Not" ("Der bewegte Mann"). Also active as a film editor, he has edited Bernd Eichinger’s "A Girl Called Rosemarie" ("Das Maedchen Rosemarie"), Thomas Jahn’s "Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door", and most recently, Paul Anderson’s "Resident Evil", among others.

In 1996, he received a German Film Award for his editorial work on Joseph Vilsmaier’s "Brother of Sleep" (Schlafes Bruder). "Boran" (2001) is his directorial feature debut.
