(Bellinzona, Switzerland, 1945). Director of photography born in the Ticino, the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. He began to take an interest in photography at the beginning of the 60's. For three years (1965-67) he studied at the Experimental Film Centre in Rome. In 1967 he made his debut as a director of photography in four films. From this moment on his name has been linked with the most prestigious films in Swiss, French and German cinema. In 1968 he began to work together with Alain Tanner on Charles mort ou vif. In 1970 he won his first international award for his work in La salamandre, also by Alain Tanner. Since then Renato Berta has photographed more than a hundred films with directors such as Straub/Huillet, who he began to work with in 1969 and who he has continued with right up to their latest film Umiliati; Manoel de Oliveira, who he has worked with for the last six years; Daniel Schmid, who he formed a creative partnership with in 1972 that continued right up to his most recent film in 1998. Renato Berta has also photographed films by Godard, René Allio, Patrice Chéreau, André Techiné, Eric Rohmer, Jacques Rivette, Louis Malle, Alain Resnais, Amos Gitai or Robert Guédiguian among others. The many prizes that he has received include the César for Best photography for Au revoir les enfants by Louis Malle in 1988, the Best Photography of the Year Prize in 1995, awarded by the Japanese Cameramen Association for Le visage écrit by Daniel Schmid, or the Gianni di Venanzo Award for Inquietud by Manoel de Oliveira in 1998.
