Short film: “The Record Breaker”

I noted the running time of 25 minutes and thought, “Oh, I’ll just watch for a sec”—but dang if I didn’t get sucked in. Try it just for a minute:


“The Record Breaker tells the life story of Ashrita Furman, the man with the most Guinness World Records of all time. [It] 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
‘Hands-down the funniest documentary of the year.’— Marianna Torgovnick, TED
