An eight-hour, slow-motion film with no actors, dialogue or narrative - and branded the dullest movie ever made by one of its own producers - is looking for an audience that wants to count sheep. Or at least watch them.
Baa Baa Land consists entirely of slow-motion shots of sheep in a field. The film was shot in Essex, England, and was produced by the founders of a digital meditation app, Calm.
“We don’t expect it to break box-office records but believe there is at least a niche audience for it”, Michael Acton Smith, one of the film’s executive producers and a co-founder of Calm said in a statement.
“We’re in discussion about US and wider distribution and in talks with an American TV channel”, he said.
Producer Peter Freedman, said in a statement that he believed it could be the dullest film ever, adding: “We hope that audiences will, too”.
