Women's Work Songs (48 min.) (2011) (Turkey)
By Filiz Bingolce
Work life is one of the most important areas in which woman creativity develops. Women produce melodic forms while working and in this powerful film the women voice their resistance, insurgence and struggles in their work songs. We learn about their real lives both personal and political as they sing out about their life.

A Moment (7 min.) (2010) - Turkey
By Nazli Bayram
The short is about the increasing speed up of workers who are tied to machine production speeds. The murderous pace puts these workers in a nightmare situation where they lose their limbs, hands and their bodies are destroyed by increasing exploitation on the job. nbayram [at] anadolu.edu.tr

Many Straws Make A Nest (50 min.) (2010) Germany/India
By KanalB
In the last 20 years, the Delhi region has turned into one of the world’s major industrial hubs. The required workforce is recruited from India’s poorer regions, where survival is being made more and more difficult for the rural populace.
This is why 4.5 million industrial workers in Southern Delhi are willing to ruin their health for wages their families can hardly survive on. People are almost powerless in this situation, but still they try to find effective ways to collectively resist.
