On Our Land chronicles the experiences of rural communities in Papua New Guinea--giving a voice to those who are losing their land and natural resources to illegal logging operations. The film exposes the failure of current development strategies and highlights community and local NGO struggles to take back what is rightfully theirs.
"Fluent and fearless...On Our Land uncovers an important, underreported story of human and environmental devastation."
- Olivier De Schutter, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food
