Legado’s Blog: Stories From the Field

While Legado's reach is global, our impact is felt hyper-locally. As we work in and with communities that we care deeply about, we get to see firsthand the impact of people's legacies as they take form. Some of our favorite stories of legacy and change are captured in our blog.

THE SIGHTS, SOUNDS AND PEOPLE OF NAMULI

In 2017, Legado received a Jump Start grant from Google. Jump Start is run by Google to connect creators with virtual reality (VR) cameras and to amplify their content. With this generous funding and equipment, the Legado team, along with filmmaker Ross Henry, created two short VR films to help take people like you to the heart of the mountain.

MOUNTAINS = WATER = LIFE

In this 3-minute VR film, filmmaker Ross Henry takes you on a journey to the heart of the mountain. Narrated by the Queen of Namuli, Mountains = Water = Life tells the story about the power of one mountain and its water — tracking water from the rainforests on top of Mount Namuli all the way on its journey to the Indian Ocean — 200 miles away.
