'A Home Unknown' LUFTHANSA travels alongside German star actress Emilia Schüle to Russia for the #inspiredby Heimweh campaign, on an emotional and introspective journey in search of identity and home with DOP Jalaludin Trautmann c/o 1ST UNIT

The campaign #inspiredby HEIMWEH - A Home Unknown again explores personal origins and identity. The newest episode is a visual journey trailing German star actress Emilia Schüle as she returns to her birthplace in Russia. The film will be broadcast across Lufthansa’s social media channels and here on GoSee.

In “A Home Unknown”, Emilia Schüle travels to Blagoveshchensk, Russia – located in the far eastern stretches of the country on the border of China – to discover the heritage and culture of her home country. She visits remote villages and traverses stunning landscapes on the confluence of the Amur and Zeya Rivers, Lake Baikal until she reaches the city where she was born. Schüle rides along one of the world's most historic train routes, the Trans-Siberian Railway. It is a journey full of images, impressions and experiences that show just how much travel can affect personal development.

“Dreaming of traveling to Russia, taking the train almost to the very end. I want to explore where I've come from to shed light on the blind spot of my past,” the actress describes her longing to find her roots. The episode cinematically captures the vibrancy of emotions and revelations through a mysterious and serene landscape across Russia and Siberia, on her journey to the place of her birth. The intensive experiences with her compatriots open new doors for the young Berliner. She finds herself and a heritage which was previously unknown to her. The camera captures these moments: a shamanic ritual in Siberia; running with wild horses on the shores of Lake Baikal before lighting a campfire right beside the lake.

Benita Struve, Senior Director Marketing Communications Lufthansa, explains: “In the new Heimweh episode, we have managed to portray a longing for home and the meaning of your geographic origins in an even more emotional manner. We show the harmony between people and destinations and the effect local customs and traditions have on us. Emilia Schüle asks exactly the right questions for our Heimweh format. Her own story pulls us all in, lets us see our own experiences, our own journey in a new light.”

Created and produced by digital agency neulandherzer, “A Home Unknown” is the third installment of the campaign. The film and the story will be supported by daily Instagram Stories that narrate the protagonist Emilia's journey in her diary, along with video logs recorded during the trip including her reflections, thoughts and personal discoveries along the way. Every episode is available on Lufthansa’s social media pages on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
