Land Beneath Our Feet

This film is part of a three-film series titled Stories from a Transforming World.

The Land Beneath Our Feet weaves together rare archival footage from a 1926 Harvard expedition to Liberia with the journey of a young Liberian man, uprooted by war, seeking to understand how the past has shaped land conflicts in his country today. This film is an explosive reminder of how large-scale land grabs are transforming livelihoods across the planet. Directed by Gregg Mitman and Sarita Siegel.

Followed by a discussion with the director, Gregg Mitman, and featured subject in the film, Emmanuel Urey.
