‘Samuel’s Fairtrade Story’ is a short film about the life of Samuel Maina, a Fairtrade coffee farmer in the Kangema district of Kenya. Samuel shows us around his farm and talks about his life.
‘Samuel’s Fairtrade Story’ has been filmed using a 360-degree camera and can be viewed using virtual reality goggles to really get a feel for life on Samuel’s farm. You can also watch the film on an interactive whiteboard, tablet or computer and explore the scene by using the cursor to scroll left and right, up and down. This film works best with the Vimeo app on a tablet or smart phone. If you want to show the film offline then you can download it from Vimeo here and they have instructions on how best to view it in 360 degrees on their website here.
