Swedish artist and filmmaker Anders Weberg has released over 300 movies, but if you haven't heard of him or seen his work, not to worry, as his epic finale of filmmaking is going to put him on the map. Weberg is currently putting together "Ambiancé," a 720-hour movie that will take one full month to watch. In preparation for the film, which will not be released until New Year's Eve 2020, we now have a teaser trailer, perhaps the longest ever made.

Yep, this is a 72-minute-long preview of "Ambiancé," which, barring anyone else trying to top him over the next six years, will be the longest movie ever made. And as you might guess, it's a collection of abstract images and music, rather than a cohesive narrative, focusing on Weberg's relationship with his own art, nonlinearly, of course. But we'll let Weberg explain his intentions in this one below from his website, and after that you can watch the trailer for yourself. [Global Post]

On December 31, 2020 the Swedish artist Anders Weberg ends his 20-plus-years relation with the moving image as a means of creative expression.
After more than 300 films he puts an end with the premiere of what will be the longest film ever made.

Ambiancé is 720 hours long (30 days) and will be shown in its full length on a single occasion syncronised in all the continents of the world and then destroyed.

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 is the visual expression that has constantly characterized the work throughout the artist's career.

As a small tease until the premiere in 2020 shorter teaser/trailers will be presented at different occasions.
2014 – Short teaser which is 72 minutes long and that has the intent to convey the mood and tempo from the full piece.
2016 – The first short trailer with duration 7 hours 20 minutes.
2018 – Longer trailer with duration 72 hours.

    A 72 hour trailer? Careful, dude. That's like a 16 minute trailer for The Avengers. Are we sure he won't be giving too much away?

    I once worked on a film for which we shot 300 hours of footage. And then we EDITED it, to make it WATCHABLE.

    Christ, I wouldn't be surprised if this Windows Movie Maker horseshit is still rendering out by the time 2020 hits.

    Unbeknownst to Mr. Weberg, there's another filmmaker, somewhere out there, currently working on a 720 hour and 1 minute film.

    This seems unnecessary. Interesting. But unnecessary.

    Exactly what films are necessary? What criteria are we using?
