Film: The Junk King

Vince Hannemann (aka the Junk King), has spent much of his life constructing the Cathedral of Junk in Austin, TX. In 2010, the city of Austin requested a building permit and Vince was forced to tear down nearly half of his creation. Despite this traumatic event and with the help of many supporters, Vince was still able to keep the Cathedral alive and continue its legacy. This short documentary directed by film-maker Evan Burns gives us a little insight into his world.
