You may not have heard of Swedish filmmaker Anders Weberg, but you probably will by the time he ends his career, six years from now, upon the release of a presumably record-breaking 720-hour long film, “Ambiancé.” It will be shown in every continent, only once, before it is destroyed.
Weberg, who has created more than 300 films in a career spanning more than two decades, has put out a whopping (but short, relatively speaking) 72-minute trailer for the film, described as “a sort of memoir movie” in which “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.”
This is the short trailer. A longer trailer, 7 hours 20 minutes long, will debut in 2016. In 2018, the world will see the 72-hour cut. In 2020, the full movie arrives on New Year’s Eve, running for 30-days straight. It will be Weberg’s last film. Currently, Supermax holds the record for the longest film,” Modern Times Forever,” at 240 hours long.
