The film has been on screens at some global events and grabbed some awards, including the Special Jury award at the International Pathological Film Festival in Italy and the Best Film Award at the Roshd International Film Festival in Iran.

Launched in 2001, the biennial LKFF aims to be “a powerful and influential form of artistic expression and one which carries great importance for Kurds” and “a tool for emancipation and self-expression”, according to the event’s official website.
