Niko von Glasow is a German film director and producer.
The founder and Artistic Director of Palladio Film, von Glasow began his training with Rainer Werner Fassbinder and then worked for a number of film directors including Georg Stefan Troller, Hellmuth Costard, Alexander Kluge, Peter Zadek and Jean-Jacques Annaud before going on to study film at New York University and at the National Film School in ÅÃ³dÅº, Poland.
In 2008 he produced and directed the feature documentary NoBody's Perfect. With a darkly humorous touch and no deference to political correctness, NoBody's Perfect follows Niko von Glasow as he looks for eleven people who, like him, were born disabled due to the disastrous side-effects of Thalidomide, and who are prepared to pose nude for a calendar of photos. The film won the German Film Award for Best Documentary at the Deutscher Filmpreis in 2009 and went on to receive worldwide acclaim.
