Greetings!

When Martin Scorsese agreed to participate in the second edition Lars von Trier's wickedly provocative FIVE OBSTRUCTIONS challenge, it got us thinking.

Marty

For those not familiar with the concept of THE FIVE OBSTRUCTIONS, in 2003, Danish auteur Lars von Trier
challenged filmmaker J�rgen Leth to remake his landmark 1968 short THE PERFECT HUMAN five times, each time facing an "obstruction," a limitation or challenge introduced by von Trier to complicate the task.  These "obstructions" range from going to Cuba to remake the film in shots no more than half a second in length to re-making the film as an animated project.

Leth and von Triet

What's especially intriguing about theis experiments is von Trier's belief that the obstructions will "
banalize" a great filmmaker--whether Leth, his mentor or Scorsese, a self-avowed cinematic stylist.

By throwing  a series of oddball off-speed pitches, von Trier strips the filmmakers of their arsenal of tools, pushes them out of their comfort zones, and forces them into the realm of pure cinema.

Doesn't the 48HFP do the same thing.  Just look at the mission:

The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers-emphasizing creativity and teamwork skills. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on "doing" instead of "talking."
