Ashrita Furman “The Record Breaker” A Documentary Film By Brian McGinn

Ashrita Furman is the man with the most Guinness World Records of all time (nearly 400). This film by Brian McGinn follows Furman as he prepares to climb Machu Picchu on stilts.

I love everything about this documentary, my only complaint is that it’s much too short! This story deserves to be a full feature! I want to surround myself with people like Ashrita Furman, so full of life!

Watch the film “The Record Breaker” below!

    This was so uplifting. One of the greatest parts for me is his commitment to everything he does. I crave that kind of energy in my passions!

Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
