The Longest Movie Ever Made / by Andrew Yorke

Every once in a while, someone decides to really push the boundaries of cinema. In the case of "Ambiancé", it's quite clearly the case.

Anders Weberg, an artist from Sweden, is embarking on making the longest movie ever made, clocking in at 43,200 minutes. To do a little bit of the math, that equates to 720 hours. That's basically thirty days. Wow.

According to his website:

[Ambiencé] is about space and time 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.

The first trailer has been uploaded, and clocks in at roughly 72 minutes. Everything this guy is doing is unconventional. There's a part of me that really digs this, and is interested in how this plays out. If you have an hour to kill, take a look at this trailer. It'll definitely take you somewhere different.

If you're still interested after watching this, go on over to his website for more information. I don't want to give too much of it away. So much of discovering projects like this (for me) is having its entire story unfold naturally. If that makes sense. I'm sure it does. On some level.
