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. Followed by a discussion with the director, Gregg Mitman, and featured subject in the film, Emmanuel Urey. Learn more about the film and watch the trailer here: http://www.thelandbeneathourfeet.com
