This powerful documentary weaves together rare archival footage from a 1926 Harvard expedition to Liberia with a young man’s quest to understand why 25% of his country’s land has been granted to multinational corporations for agricultural, mining and logging concessions. An explosive investigation of how large-scale land grabs transform livelihoods across the world. Followed by Directors Q&A and linked to a one-day environmental filmmaking workshop. The Phil Taylor Cinema is located in Clothworkers North Building just behind the Parkinson Building on the University of Leeds campus. Sponsored by the ENHANCE ITN.
