Story development for a short creative documentary. In collaboration with HKU Documentary Initiative.

Uli Gaulke is guest of the filmmaker-in-residence-program 2018, a joint initiative of Goethe-Institut Hongkong and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg. During his three-month stay in Hong Kong, Uli Gaulke will not only research and work on a new film project, but also share his long experience as a documentary film maker in a masterclass with students of Hong Kong University.  The topic is story development for a short documentary, and the structure of the workshop –  three days spread over four weeks – allows the students to develop their own projects with Uli Gaulke’s expertise.
Workshop dates: 6 and 27 October, 1 November, 9.30 am – 4.30 pm. For more information, please see​

In addition to the masterclass, Uli Gaulke will present his three most popular films at HKU: Havanna mi Amor, Comrades in Dreams and As Time goes Bye in Shanghai. The screenings are open to the general public, and the director is present for a Q&A after each film.
