Kerstin Stutterheim was born in East-Berlin on May 17th 1961. She studied theatre and cultural communications in Leipzig and at the Humboldt University, Berlin. After graduating, she worked in television and started directing her own documentaries, including "Die Wäscherei - ein Herz für Umwelt und Gewebe" and "Original Wolfen.
