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.
With Theodore Bouloukos and Joanne Douglas.

Lenin with Meir Pichhadze


Lenin, 2006, 3:50 min.

‘Once while walking, Leo Tolstoy spotted in the distance the figure of a
man squatting and gesturing strangely; a madman, he thought, but on
drawing nearer he was satisfied that the man was attending to necessary
work, sharpening a knife on a stone. Lenin was fond of citing this example.
