The Zone (40 min.) (2010) - Turkey
By Guliz Saglam, Feryal Saygiligil
Seven workers, all women; four free trade zones in four different Turkish cities all surrounded by high walls, barbed wire fences, like a concentration camp. This documentary covers the working conditions of women in the free trade zones, their experiences, observations and their hopes for the future. The barbed wire fences not only surround the zones but also accentuate the captivity of women, of women workers, so much so that the borders of the zone evade us, inside and outside as being indistinguishable.

Like A Bird In The Cage: Women in Desa Resistance (30 min.) (2009) - Turkey
By Guliz Saglam, Feryal Saygiligil
This is about the female workers who were fired from their factory. The documentary reveals the working conditions of women, the experience they gain while organizing, the advantages of resistance, their hopes and expectations and the Istanbul Women’s Platform, reflecting the solidarity with them throughout the resistance strike.
