    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, the 2013 New Orleans Film Festival, and the 2014 Big Sky Documentary 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

    'Hands-down the funniest documentary of the year.'
    — Marianna Torgovnick, TED

    'An ode to human obsession, dedication and monumental silliness.'
    — Lena Dystant, Selectism

    'A complex appraisal of a fascinating individual...McGinn's film excels because it does more than just focus on Furman’s unconventional hobby. As emotionally complex as it is gloriously ludicrous.'
    — Ivan Kander, Short Of The Week
