THE RECORD BREAKER
a film by Brian McGinn
The Record Breaker tells the life story of Ashrita Furman, the man with the most Guinness World Records of all time.
Winner of the Vimeo Audience Award at the 2013 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and Jury Prizes at the 2012 Palm Springs International ShortsFest and the 2013 New Orleans Film Festival, The Record Breaker follows Furman as he trains to set a new record: climbing Machu Picchu on stilts.
'A swimmingly edited, life-affirming film. Genuinely touching.'
— Robert Silva, IndieWire
'Less than a feature and more than a short, it wins hands-down as the funniest documentary of the year.'
— Marianna Torgovnick, TED
