“In their profoundly humanist documentary film This Land Is Your Land, Lori Cheatle and Daisy Wright explore the pervasive influence corporations are exerting on life in America. In archival footage and recorded testimonies, the filmmakers trace the impact of corporate power on individual lives, the social fabric, and the very principles of democracy. …At the heart of Cheatle and Wright’s film are the stories of individual people who have beaten the odds in their battles against corporate dominion. Essentially optimistic in their viewpoint, Cheatle and Wright fall squarely on the side of David taking on the corporate Goliath, issuing a celebratory acknowledgment of small acts of resistance…“ -The Whitney Museum of Art
