Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Room B-04, 24 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA United States


Join the University of Wisconsin-Madison, MIT STS and Harvard University for a 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.
