Biography

Helmut Christian Görlitz, born 1944 in Hamburg, studied psychology and philosophy in Hamburg and literary studies at the University of Pennsylvania, USA. Then, in the mid-1970s, the film enthusiast started to work as an assistant director for Ottokar Runze and, from the 1980s on, worked as a freelance director and screenplay writer.

After his directorial debut "Das Ende vom Anfang" (1981), Görlitz exclusively worked for TV productions where he covered the most diverse genres: He directed and wrote children's series such as "Der kleine Vampir", that won the award of the children's jury at the 1994 Chicago Children's Film Festival, and thrillers such as "Der Deal" (1991), as well as psychological dramas like "Freier Fall" (1997), starring Josef Bierbichler (awarded with the Grimme award in Gold in 1998), and "Nachts wenn der Tag beginnt" (2003), starring Nina Petri. In 2008, Christian Görlitz finally made his second film for the big screen, the tragicomedy "Fleisch ist mein Gemüse".
