About Cagla

I was born in 1965 in Ankara, Turkey. I got my bachelor’s degree in archaeology. I worked at Economic Bulletin weekly newspaper in Istanbul before I moved to New York in 1990. I studied writing, producing, directing and editing for documentary at the New School of New York and School of Visual Arts.
I worked as the New York correspondent of Channel 6 in Turkey during the 90's. Later on, I worked as a Program Coordinator at Global Village Productions producing the "Beckett Project". I was the assistant editor in "Guerillas in our Midst" directed by Amy Harrison and assistant producer at "Fortune Cookies" directed by Christian Choy.
In 2000, I moved to Athens, Greece. I wrote articles for Milliyet Sanat and Vatan newspapers. I produced a thirteen episodes documentary series on contemporary Turkey titled "Orient Express", broadcasted on Greek National Television in 2011. Most recently I produced a two part documentary for Al Jazeera People & Power about human smuggling, titled “Borderless”.
