What is The Speed Cubers about?
This feel-good documentary tells the story of “the rivalry/friendship between the two best Rubik’s cubers in the world – 17 year-old Max Park and 23-year old Feliks Zemdegs”.
At the World Cube Association World Championships, Australian wunderkind Feliks holds the global title for fastest Rubik’s Cube solver – but his reign is threatened when American teen Max Parks enters the speed-solving scene.
The film looks at both cubers’ origins with Rubik’s cubes, from Max’s diagnosis with autism to Feliks’ TV appearances from a young age, and the fierce, but friendly, competition between them.
