Swedish artist and filmmaker Anders Weberg has released a trailer for his upcoming film Ambiancé — and the clip is 72 minutes long. That’s because Weberg’s film will take one month to watch. It’s a 720-hour movie set to be released on New Year’s Eve in 2020. If no filmmaker swoops in to steal his sunshine, Weberg’s film will be the longest movie ever made.
Ambiancé lives up to its name, revealing a series of visual impressions — abstract and often surreal images that flow into one another, set to an ambient soundtrack. In the words of the Weberg, who has created more than 300 movies, Ambiancé is a “nonlinear narrative summary of the artist’s time spent with the moving image.

"A sort of memoir movie. (Film memoir.) This is the visual expression that has constantly characterized the work throughout the artist's career.” And here’s a timetable for the project if you’d like to mark your calendar:
As a small tease until the premiere in 2020 shorter teaser/trailers will be presented at different occasions.
