Swedish artist and filmmaker Anders Weberg has released a teaser trailer for
Ambiancé, a 720-hour movie due to be released in 2020. The film is an
attempt at breaking the world record for the longest film ever made, currently
held by Modern Times Forever, a 2011 film spanning 240 hours which was
created by a group of Danish artists named Superflex.
Weberg describes the film on his blog: “In the piece Ambiancé space and
time is intertwined into a surreal dream-like journey beyond places and is an
abstract nonlinear narrative summary of the artist’s time spent with the moving
image. A sort of memoir movie. (Film memoir). This in the visual expression that
is constantly characterized the work throughout the artist’s career.”
On 31 December 2020 the film is due to screen in its full length in every
continent after which it will be destroyed.
