Logistics or Logistics Art Project is a 2012 experimental art film conceived and created by Erika Magnusson and Daniel Andersson. At 51,420 minutes (857 hours or 35 days and 17 hours), it is the longest film ever made.



In 2008, Erika Magnusson and Daniel Andersson asked themselves where modern electronic gadgets come from. They conceived the idea to follow the production cycle of a pedometer in reverse chronological order from end sales back to its origin and manufacture. The route of the journey commenced in Stockholm, then proceeded through Insjön, Gothenburg, Bremerhaven, Rotterdam, Algeciras, Málaga, and finished in Shenzhen at the manufacturer in Bao'an.

Funding was provided by the Innovativ Kultur Foundation[1] and Kulturbryggan [sv].

The project was filmed in real time during a trip to and in locations at a factory, following the route of the product's manufacture from the store in Stockholm where it was purchased to the factory in China where it was manufactured.[2][3]


At 857 hours (35 days and 17 hours), Logistics is the longest film ever released.[3][4] The 51,420 minute (5-weeks long) film was screened at Uppsala City Library [sv] from 1 December 2012 to 6 January 2013, at The House of Culture, Stockholm, and had its world premiere at the 2014 Fringe Film Festival Shenzhen, as well as being streamed online.[5][6]
