720-Hour Long Movie

Three years ago Danish artist collective Superflex created Modern Times Forever, a 240-hour film which broke the record for the longest movie of all time. Well if a 10-day long movie wasn’t enough, Swedish artist Anders Weberg is hoping to break that record with his 720-hour long movie, Ambiancé. That’s right, a movie with a running time of 30 straight days — and you thought Transformers: Age of Extinction felt long? Here is hoe Weberg describes the film:

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 artists career.

Weberg says this teaser trailer “is supposed to convey the mood from the full film.” You can watch the first “short teaser trailer” embedded after the jump.

Modern Times Forever began playing for one time only, projected on the side of the Stora Enso Building in Helsinki, Finland on Wednesday and will continue for 240 hours. That’s right, it’s 10 days long, making it the new title holder of longest movie of all time. What could a ten day movie possibly be about? Find out after the jump. Read More »
