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!

Sunwheel Made Up of Hundreds of Gold Plates

Moradavaga9

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby.
