Having trouble catching some Zzz’s? Perhaps it’s time to watch “the dullest movie ever made.” No, we’re not cracking a joke, we’re referring to a new 8-hour film which gives an entirely new meaning to the phrase “counting sheep.”
Created by the producers of the popular meditation app Calm, Baa Baa Land is composed of eight, solid hours of sheep, standing in fields. There is no dialogue, no plot, no conflict, no characters, just slow-motion content of sheep being sheep and a calming soundtrack of sheep noises.
Baa Baa Land is set to premiere at the Prince Charles Cinema in London’s West End and online via the Calm website this September. Said Alex Tew, Baa Baa Land’s executive producer and the co-founder of Calm, “It’s better than any sleeping pill – the ultimate insomnia cure.”
According to the film’s representatives, the snooze of a film ranks as the 19th longest film ever made. In case you were wondering, the longest movie ever recorded is Logistics, a Swedish film that is 857 hours long. However, this flick will be the first feature-lento movie that has been produced by an app company.
Said Michael Acton Smith, Baa Baa Land’s other executive producer and Calm’s co-founder: “We’re in discussion about U.S., and wider, distribution and in talks with an American TV channel. We don’t expect it to break box-office records but [we] believe there is at least a niche audience for it.”
Considering more than 30% of the population suffers from insomnia, there is definitely a need for the world’s most boring film. Watch the trailer for Baa Baa Land below:
