Biography

Thomas Plenert, born 1951, in Nauen, studied at Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen "Konrad Wolf" in Potsdam and at the famous film school in Lodz, Poland. With his camera work for highly-praised documentary films such as Jürgen Böttcher"s "Rangierer" ("The Shunting-Station Workers") and "Die Mauer", Plenert soon made a name as one of the most accomplished cinematographers of German cinema.

In 1988, he worked for Volker Koepp"s short documentary film "Feuerland" – which marked the beginning of a longtime collaboration. Since then, Plenert has filmed nearly all of Koepp"s films and has significantly contributed to its poetic images. Furthermore, he has won the German film award for his work in Koepp"s film "Kalte Heimat" ("Cold Homeland"). Although he mainly became famous for his camera work in documentary films, Plenert has again and again worked as a cinematographer for feature film productions. He provided Jan Schütte"s film "Fette Welt" ("Fat World", 1998), a drama about homeless persons, with its raw, naturalistic look and has filmed several episodes of the TV crime film series "Polizeiruf 110" – and has won a Grimme award for his camera work for the episode "Kleine Frau", directed by Andreas Kleinert. In the movie season 2006/07, Plenert again proved how easily he was able to switch between feature films and documentary films when he was in charge of the camera work for both Bernd Böhlich"s highly-praised social comedy "Du bist nicht allein" and Volker Koepp"s film "Holunderblüte" ("Elder Blossom").
