Perfect is Perfect!

Recently, a number of films have emerged that depict Tourette Syndrome faithfully and expressively, such as Different is the New Normal and the short films in the beloved @RANDOM series. It comes as no surprise that these are all documentaries, with real subjects. Representing TS in a work of fiction is either very challenging, or else highly exploitative, often relying on coprolalia and little else. Enter the brand new short film Perfect. It’s both fictional, funny, and a fair portrayal of TS Plus. Not only that, it’s Canadian! Perfect is the brainchild of filmmaker Karim Ayari of Ottawa, Ontario, who has Tourette Syndrome and Obsessive-compulsive Disorder himself. You can see an interview with Karim along with more details about the film here. Karim’s film is in competition in the CBC show Short Film Face-off, and will be broadcast nationally on Saturday, August 17th. In the meantime, you can see Perfect in its entirety here: https://vimeo.com/62878883 We wish Perfect all the best at the competition, where it will vie with other films for the top prize, with the winner being announced on September 7th.
