Screening of The Land Beneath Our Feet
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.
Film followed by Q&A with director Gregg Mitman.
Co-sponsored by Princeton Environmental Institute, the Princeton Public Library, the Program in African Studies, and the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies.
