A couple of weeks ago, I have written about Swedish artist Anders Weberg’s incredibly long 720h film Ambiancé. He was kind enough to give me access to the short trailer of it, which is 72 minutes long. I found it to be a very moving and stunning experience. You can read my thoughts on it here.
The short trailer is now online for the public to see. From 4 – 20 July you have the chance to watch the trailer and get a feeling for the overall project. It is an experimental film, so do not expect to encounter a straightforward narrative. Ambiancé deserves your full ignorance, if I may say so. Don’t expect anything, don’t try to make sense of it, and, most of all, do not try to interpret it. Just watch the trailer and see it for what it is.
According to Weberg himself, 280 hours of the final film are finished. The music comes from German composer Marsen Juhls. In his own words: “6 months ago today my son André took an overdose and died 21 years old. Much of my works over the years has centered around him. This is for him.”
