An eight-hour slow-motion film with no plot, dialogue or actors has unveiled its trailer, poster and plans this September for a red-carpet premiere and global webcast.
Baa Baa Land is a contemplative epic, entirely starring sheep.
The American-financed, British-made film will premiere at the Prince Charles Cinema in London's West End this September, on the same date [to be announced] that Calm.com, the California-based meditation app that produced it, premieres it online for a global audience.
The film, says its trailer, "is itself a meditation, a dream, an enchantment... a tonic for the soul".
It is also an example of "Slow Cinema", a genre of art films known for long takes, slow pace and lack of action or narrative. Click above for the trailer (which doesn't last eight hours).
