Biography

Luigi Kuveiller is an Italian cinematographer with over 100 film and television credits in a career spanning more than 50 years. The Rome-born Kuveiller worked with American directors as well as numerous Italians over that extraordinary stretch. He started his career as a camera operator in the early '50s, and in 1961 made his cinematography debut with the documentary "The Grand Olympics". In 1970, Kuveiller was the director of photography for American director Vic Morrow's Western "A Man Called Sledge", with James Garner in the title role; the film was in English, though shot in Italy. In 1972, Kuveiller teamed up with legendary writer-director Billy Wilder on his romantic comedy "Avanti!", which starred Jack Lemmon and Juliet Mills. Following that relatively big-budget effort, Kuveiller swung to the independent end of the spectrum by filming two successive Warhol films, "Andy Warhol's Frankenstein" in 1973 and "Andy Warhol's Dracula" in 1974. Warhol's film collaborator Paul Morrissey, not Warhol, actually directed the films, though they maintain the irreverence central to the artist's oeuvre. In 1975, Kuveiller worked with lauded Italian director Dario Argento on his horror thriller about an elusive murderer, "Deep Red". Kuveiller's most critically successful effort came in 1983, when he was nominated for a Golden Bear, the highest honor given at the Berlin International Film Festival, for shooting the Roberto Russo film "Flirt".
