Biography

Uli Gaulke was born on August 19, 1968, in Schwerin. After finishing school, he studied computer sciences as well as theatre and film studies, before he took up directing at the "Konrad Wolf" Academy of Film and Television in Babelsberg. In 1996, he began making short movies, including "Irgendwo in Deutschland" (1996) and "Niemand lacht rückwärts" (1998). His 30-minute documentary "Quién es el último – Wer ist der Letzte" (1997) won him several awards at different international film festivals. In 2001, Gaulke received the German Film Award for his graduation film "Havanna, mi amor", in which he portrayed Cuban telenovela fans.

At the Berlinale 2003, Gaulke premiered his documentary "Heirate mich - Casate conmigo". The movie depicts the complicated relationship between a German man and his Cuban wife who has followed him to Germany. In October 2006, Gaulken presented his third feature documentary at the renowned film festival in Pusan, Korea: "Comrades in Dreams – Leinwandfieber", a humorous, well-observed portrait of four cinema operators from Africa, Korea, India and the United States.
