HEIMKEHR BY TIM SESSLER

Tim Sessler is a cinematographer and documentary filmmaker based in Philadelphia. I've grown quite fond of his work. His short film Drift circulated the Internet last week and features three minutes of stunning aerial footage shot during his flights from San Francisco to Salt Lake City, then on to Philadelphia. The above film, titled Heimkehr (Homecoming in German), is an even shorter video shot from airplane windows on Sessler's journey home from Costa Rica. The images are gorgeous and the song Happiness by Jonsi and Alex is the perfect accompaniment. The film perfectly captures the beauty of returning home to a familiar place and to loved ones after time away.
