While the video will work within Facebook (dragging it with a mouse will simulate the 360-degree ‘scape), we suggest you don your VR headset for this one, especially if you fancy some light folk music, emotional scenes of people wishing others well, and you know, selfies.
Have a look at the video, entitled Here and Now, in full below.
