The Record Breaker

2013 USA / Duration: 25 mins Directed by: Brian McGinn

Ashrita Furman is the greatest record breaker of all time. Underwater bicycling, upside-down juggling, splitting apples with a samurai sword — you name it. Ashrita has done it. And set a record in the process. It’s not a path he followed for fame and glory, but rather to honor his guru, which seems as if it must be some kind of record in itself. Nearly 400 world records later, he is nowhere near finished. This is a delightful film about a delightful character who, among his seemingly limitless other talents, also has the ability to coax a smile.
