Watch: Award-Winning Short Documentary 'The Record Breaker' Showcases A Life of Weird World Record Breaking

Ever wondered what compels people to go after such odd accomplishments as World's Largest Hula Hoop or Longest Duration Balancing a Lawnmower on Chin? The acclaimed short documentary "The Record Breaker" introduces the audience Ashrita Furman, a health food store manager in Queens who has amassed over 350 Guinness book records over the past three decades. The 24-minute film, which garnered the Vimeo Audience Award at this year's Full Frame Documentary Film Festival as well as the jury prize at Palm Springs International ShortFest, traces Furman's life and follows him as he sets out on a bizarre, potentially unperformed task: climbing Machu Picchu on stilts.

And the film has just been made available online for free via Vimeo:
