Nobody’s Perfect cover


In the late 1950s and early 60s, more than 10,000 children were born with deformities due to the use ofThalidomide, a drug used in sedatives. Filmmaker Niko von Glasow was one of the victims, and in Nobody’s Perfect he tracks down 11 others who suffered the disastrous side-effects. Niko is recruiting them to pose nude for a book ofphotographs, to give the ever- present gawkers a good, long look. He especially wants the executives at GrĀnenthal, the pharmaceutical company that produced the drug, to see the result of their crimes. He ends up stalking his way into their offices like a German Michael Moore, confronting them with images of their misdeeds. The children of Thalidomide are the heart of the film, though, as they battle their body-image issues with courage and dark humor, while pursuing their diverse and successful careers. They are painters, champion horse-riders, actors, and astrophysicists, an inspiring group who overcame incredible odds to become extraordinary people.
