Join us for a screening and discussion of protest videos from Turkey and hear from filmmakers and activists working on the ground to support human rights.

This program includes works by Guliz Saglam that address pressing issues such as justice, equality, and freedom, regarding the feminist movement and the struggle of LGBTQIA+ and women in contemporary Turkey. The future, the building of a community, and the possibility to rise up against capitalist patriarchy are key topics that resonate in the videos.

Her work consists of independent documentaries on various issues including immigration, women workers’ strikes and resistance in different parts of Turkey, as well as solidarity campaigns of women’s organizations with women workers’ resistance movements and the encounter of feminists with women labor and peace activism of women. She documents the campaigns and demonstrations of feminist movement’s and women’s initiative for peace.
