Perfect Human

DK I 1967 I 13 min I Jorgen Leth

The Perfect Human (Danish: Det perfekte menneske) is a cult short film in black and white by Jørgen Leth lasting 13 minutes about a middle class Danish couple performing everyday rituals. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 1967. Made a landmark in Danish filmmaking. The film examines human behavior in a suave, pseudo-scientific way.

The film was later seen in five different versions when Leth was challenged by filmmaker Lars von Trier, which were compiled in The Five Obstructions
