Mueller honored with lifetime achievement award

COLOGNE — Former Wim Wenders cameraman Robbie Mueller was honored last week with the lifetime achievement award by the Deutscher Kamerapreis.

Dutch-born Mueller, 65, joined Wenders in the 1970s and worked on the helmer’s German as well as American productions including “Paris, Texas” and “Until the End of the World.”

Jurors cited Mueller’s feel for urban atmosphere as shown not only in Wenders’ pics but also in productions such as “To Live and Die in L.A.” and “Barfly.” He also worked on movies by Jim Jarmusch and Lars von Trier.

The committee honored 11 other lensers including Michael Hammon for the Andreas Dresen-directed film “Willenbrock” and Vietnam-born Ngo Chau for the TV movie “Sheherazade.”

The foundation behind the Deutscher Kamerapreis includes film funder Filmstiftung NRW, broadcasters ARD, ZDF and Premiere, and the city of Cologne.
