Sleep - The longest commercial single-layer DVD-movie

On the 50th anniversary of Warhol's cult film, Sleep Lilja decided to make a remake of the classic. Andy could not make it according to his plans due to the technical limitations, but this version will do it: No looping. Just 8 hours of sleep.
MALMÖ, Sweden - Jan. 8, 2014 - PRLog -- The stunning 8-hour long footage was earlier released in Youtube, but it is now available in Amazon as a single-layer DVD-movie making it the longest of it's kind.

The movie wants to make homage to the original from 1963, so the low quality is not an issue. "I was not at all worried about the quality. In matter of fact I added quite a bit of film grain and noise tote film in editing. The artifacts from the high compression on the DVD are just adding to the experience making it truly a mixture between old and new", commented film maker Juha Lilja.

The movie also has an very special 5-hour soundtrack, that actually is not just a single loop, but is changing in tempo, pitch and volume all the time.

The movie has already been gaining a samll cult-status in it's home country, Sweden. There organizers of a LAN-party have decided from now on to screen the movie in full at every party.

Sleep is also available as an installation, where the looping movie is projected to an empty bed.
