Land Beneath Our Feet (60 min)

When the lost footage from the 1920s depicting a corporate land grab in the early days of globalization arrives back in Liberia in West Africa, it sparks inquiry into how Liberians lost sovereignty over the very land that sustains them. The Land Beneath Our Feet is a powerful documentary that weaves together how the past has shaped land-conflicts in Liberia as well as the negative impacts on its people's livelihoods.
