The Five Obstructions

Directed by Jørgen Leth & Lars von Trier

Gearing up for the release of DOGVILLE, we offer the first Dogme non-fiction feature (dogumentary). Von Trier challenges his mentor Leth to remake five times his influential 1967 short THE PERFECT HUMAN. The trick is that he has to work to a set of willfully perverse rules, testing Leth’s limits, from Cuba to Bombay to Haiti, exposing equally the filmmaking process and the relationship between a self-appointed enfant terrible and his chosen father figure.“Mischievous and provocative.” The Observer
