With an oeuvre spanning nearly five decades Jorgen Leth is among the most distinctive artists in danish cinema. His films on the whole are remarkable for their experimentation, as he has consistently explored the possibilities and limitations of the film medium. Now, the Danish Film Institute is issuin Jorgen Leth´s complete works on DVD in a six-volume box set.
The first box embraces Leth´s so-called anthropological films, five films in all shaped around of life. Leth briefly studied ethnography in the early 1960s; as a filmmaker, he has employed anthropological methods and stratagems, whether portraying people and customs in rainforest settings ("Notes on Love") or training his lens on miscellaneous Danes ("Life in Denmark"). In "The perfect human", he sets out to study the human species, as biological creature and as phenomenon.
In the director´s own words, "my basic idea is: I know nothing, but I would like to know something. Curiosity is an engine, Searching, fascination, framing. Discovering, seeking to understand. Not knowing in advance, not proving, not illustrating, certainly not arguing, but showing." This was a necessary starting point for the anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski (1884-1942) when he visited the Trobiand Islands in the 1920s to study local sexual customs. Recently, LArs von Trier, taking off from "The perfect human", put the method to the test in "The five obstructions".
