Jørgen Leths udødelige klassiker i et Covid-remake med masker og social afstand: en manual i at være det perfekte menneske i 2021.

Covid-19 har gjort det endnu sværere at være perfekt, end det allerede var. Her er en film, der viser en, hvordan det skal gøres. Et remake af Jørgen Leths film fra 1967, der i et graciøst koreograferet kropssprog placerer sig mellem dans og performance - med social afstand og masker, naturligvis. Perfektionismen i den sort/hvide æstetik er dog stadig lige kompromisløs i Maia Sørensen og Kristina Daurovas update, som med underspillet humor analyserer hvad det kræver at være et menneske (perfekt eller ej) under en pandemi, fra middagsselskaber i privaten til det offentlige rum.

Jørgen Leth’s immortal classic in a Covid remake with masks and social distancing: a manual in being the perfect human being in 2021.

Covid-19 has made it even harder to be perfect than it already was. Here is a film that shows us how to do it. A remake of Jørgen Leth’s film from 1967, which, with a gracefully choreographed body language, places itself between dance and performance - with social distancing and masks, of course. However, the perfectionism of the black-and-white aesthetics is just as uncompromising in Maia Sørensen and Kristina Daurova’s update, which with understated humour takes a look at what it takes to be a human being (perfect or not) during a pandemic, from private dinner parties to the public space.
