Winner of the 2009 German Film Award for Best Documentary, NoBody’s Perfect (2008, 90 minutes) follows Director Niko von Glasow as he looks for eleven people who, like him, were born disabled due to the side-effects of Thalidomide, and who are prepared to pose nude for a book of photos.
The documentary explores the specific problems these twelve extraordinary people faced during their lives, and their candid reactions towards the photography project. The final results of the photo shoot give the models entirely new perspectives on themselves. The screening is followed by a panel discussion about disability and sexuality.
