CineTributes: Natasha Braier



No list of the most promising new cinematographers so far this century could be accurate without today's subject in Screen On Screen's July tribute to unsung talents in the cinematography game. Argentinian Natasha Braier was only a few titles into her feature film career when she started working with internationally-renowned auteurs such as Lucia Puenzo, Shane Meadows and Claudia Llosa. She shot Llosa's 2009 Berlin Golden Bear winner The Milk of Sorrow, one of the films included in today's original montage.


Since then, Braier's work has branched out, reaching ever greater and more diverse audiences. She's worked on popular English-language titles in recent years, most notably Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon and Alma Har'el's Honey Boy. Braier has been the deserving recipient of several cinematography awards and nominations for these titles, including a Spotlight Award nod from the American Society of Cinematographers this past awards season, though she's yet to snag an Oscar nomination; she'd be only the second woman to do so, and I'd say the odds are looking pretty good. She's a fantastic artist and an asset to any film, and I hope you enjoy the video!
