cathedral made of junk

The Junk King from Evan Burns on Vimeo.


Meet Vince Hannemann, the junk king. Since 1989 he's been collecting people's unwanted things and slowly built a cathedral. By 2010 the city of Austin had closed the structure down claiming it was unsafe and had demanded Hannemann to get a building permit. Before he could get the permit however, the engineer forced him to remove 60 tons of material, and so Hannemann did. Hearing what had happened to him, hundreds of volunteers came to the rescue and helped him rebuild. Check out this documentary by Evan Burns, it's remarkable.
