A Year Along the Geostationary Orbit

A short film by Felix Dierich
Germany 2018, 16 min, colour, no dialogue

35786 km above Earth, travelling at more than 11000 km/h, Himawari-8, Japan's most advanced meteorological satellite, observes the Eastern Hemisphere day and night.

For one year we look through the eyes of the distant observer. From solstice to solstice, from pole to pole, from storm to storm we watch Earth's beauty and fragility, weather's wonders, forces and disasters - from space, it all looks miraculous.
