The Perfect Human – The Six Obstruction


The Perfect Human, The Six Obstruction, 2006- 2019, 12:07 min.

Lars von Trier’s favorite film was ‘The Perfect Human’, a Jørgen Leth’s classic from 1968.
In 2003, Lars von Trier and Jørgen Leth colaborated and made ‘The Five Obstructions’, a film in which Von Trier gave Leth the task of remaking ‘The Perfect Human’ five times, each time with a different “obstruction” (obstacle).
In 2006 I shot ‘The Perfect Human, The Six Obstruction’, A variation on Leth’s classic.  The movie is using the synopsis/storyboard and sound track of Leth’s original.
