The Five Obstructions
Directed by Lars von Trier and Jorgen Leth
The Five Obstructions
Lars von Trier now enters the world of documentary filmmaking alongside his idol, Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth. In 1967, Leth made a 12 minute feature film called The Perfect Human. In the year 2000, von Trier challenged Jorgen Leth to remake his film five times, each time with a new obstruction to force Leth to rethink the story and characters of the original film. Lars von Trier sets a game in motion that is full of traps and vicious turns hoping each time Leth will fail but it turns out to have a surprising outcome.
