Reading Helmut Zierl // Wiesmoor
July 14 @ 19:00 - 21:00
“Three months that gave my life a new direction. And that taught me three things: respect, humility and tolerance. Values for my life.”
Back in 1971, Lütjensee in the north German province: Helmut Zierl is 16 and standing with his army bag at the highway entrance heading south. First the school kicked him out, then his father too. And he thinks to himself: Just away, towards the sun, with 200 marks in his pocket, looking for the meaning of life. What follows are three months of happiness, fear, adventure and life on the road. Three months of concentrated life experience that pushed him to his limit and gave him a new direction for his future. He has never forgotten that summer and tells this story here for the first time.
Helmut Zierl, born 1954 in Meldorf, Schleswig-Holstein. Already at the age of seventeen he attended the Hamburg Acting Studio Hildburg Frese. After several years at the Landesbühne in Hanover and the Thalia Theater in Hamburg, an impressive career as a TV, series and film actor followed. He became known to the public through Tatort, Der Alte, Florida Lady, Familie Sonnenfeld, Flug in die Hölle, Ein Mann steht seine Frau, Traumschiff, Rosamunde Pilcher and about 300 other productions.
