Veit Helmer was born in 1968 in Hannover. He started shooting films at the age of fourteen. After finishing school he was trainee at German TV station NDR. Two months before the wall came down, he moved to East-Berlin to study theatre directing at the famous drama school Ernst Busch. From 1991 to 1997 Helmer studied film directing at Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film Munich. He is a director and producer, known for Tuvalu and Absurdistan.

There's a sweet echo of Jacques Tati about this silent film charmer from Azerbaijan, as German director Veit Helmer serves up a gently absurdist tale of a lonely soon-to-retire train driver Nurlan looking for love.
