Katunayake Free Trade Zone, music by the Women's Centre is a video recorded from a car within the Katunayake Free Trade Zone in Sri Lanka. The video-recording is accompanied by music performed and made by the Women's Centre singing group. The Women's Centre was established in 1982 by Women workers within the Free Trade Zone to protect and empower women workers within the Free Trade Zones and the society.
This video is part of the Kotmale/Katunayake Free Trade Zone project that consists of a series of videos, a billboard, texts, images and events that investigates the politics around the Free Trade Zones and the Kotmale project, which were parts of WB, IMF and WTOs neo-liberal restructural adjustment policies in Sri Lanka and around the world. The project investigates the relationship between capitalism and gender; counter hegemonic narratives; and strategies to affect social change.
