The Perfect Human (Danish: Det perfekte menneske) is a 1968 short film by Jørgen Leth lasting 13 minutes. It depicts a man and a woman, both labelled 'the perfect human' in a detached manner, 'functioning' in a white boundless room, as though they were subjects in a zoo.[1]

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.[1]
