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 it was broadcast nationally in Canada on August 17. In the meantime, you can see Perfect in its entirety here:

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 7.
