Scrap

From Killing Joke Films.

Scrap is a feature documentary which follows the history of two eccentric builders and their amazing structures which were both built by a single man. The Forevertron, located in Wisconsin and built by Tom Every, is recognized as the world’s largest scrap metal sculpture which was created to send his soul into space after he dies. Bishop Castle, located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and built by Jim Bishop, is a ten story castle that he has been erecting without any outside help since 1969. The film focuses on the eccentric architects of these structures, as they are as fascinating and awe inducing as their creations.
