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!

“12 O’Clock Boys” Documentary by Lotfy Nathan (Official Trailer)

12 O'Clock Boys Documentary by Lotfy Nathan

When I posted Noah Rabinowitz’s photo series last week (see the photos here), I had no idea there was also a documentary film coming out!

Filmmaker Lotfy Nathan spent 3 years on the project, filming the wild antics of a notorious dirt bike gang known as the “12 O’Clock Boys”, in Baltimore. The gang’s name is a reference to wheeling the bike to the point you’re completely vertical.

The story is told from the point of view of Pug, a youngster from the Westside who wants to join them. According to the film’s website, it’s already garnered critical acclaim at SXSW and Hot Docs film festivals, and is set to be released in 2014. Can’t wait!

Watch the exhilarating trailer below!

Chi Raq - Documentary film by Will Robson-Scott

My friend photographer Will Robson-Scott told me a little bit about his documentary “Chi Raq” when I was with him in Australia earlier this year. It feels like it’s been a long time since then, so I was excited yesterday when he told me it was finally online!

This is an intimate portrait of life in South and West Chicago. I had no idea it was one of the most dangerous cities in America.
