The six Turkish and Armenian students made the films in 2011 as part of the "Dialogue-Building between Armenia and Turkey" project, funded by the United States Department of State Bureau of Democracy, Rights and Labor. The films were co-produced by Internews Armenia and CAM Film (based in Istanbul), with the support of GPoT Center. They were screened in Armenia between December 5th and 7th, 2011.
The screening and the films received press coverage in the Haberturk television station; Jamanak, a Turkish-Armenian newspaper; and the Gamurç/Köprü program on the IMC TV network.
