A trailer for the film was released on November 30, 2021, and has since crossed 70 million views on YouTube.
The Red Sea Film Festival kicked off in Jeddah on December 6, 2021. It is Saudi Arabia’s first international film festival which was reannounced in March after being postponed due to the pandemic. The festival made news for many reasons, especially the equal gender split in its management.
The film fest attracted a large number of prominent names from entertainment, music and fashion from around the world. British supermodel Naomi Campbell, Ed Westwick and Spanish actor Maria Pedraza are among the many who graced the event.
According to organisers, 138 films from 167 countries were screened during the 10-day festival. Of them, 38% were by women filmmakers.
