Longest film ever made releases new 7 hour trailer
The final film will only be shown once and then it’ll be destroyed
Vimeo Laurence Mozafari, 16th April 2016 Many modern films come under fire for running over ninety minutes, and while some Oscar-contenders often like to push things to near the three hour mark, a new film from Swedish director Anders Weberg will run for a total of 30 days.
The artist and director is trying to bag the world record for Ambiancé, although the film won’t actually be released until 2020. However in the meantime he’s released a 7 hour and 20 minute ‘trailer’, which follows the 72 minute ‘teaser’ he put out in 2014.
The film was shot in Hovs Hallar in the south of Sweden, the same location Ingmar Bergman filmed the chess game with death in the Seventh Seal.
The film which Weberg depicts as “space and time is intertwined into a surreal dream-like journey beyond places.”
He’s set to release a 72 hour trailer for the film in 2018 and once it’s finally complete in 2020, there’ll be a one-off global, month long screening on all continents, after which the film will be destroyed.
