The Jakarta Globe reports that the screening attracted more than 2.000 people, overflowing the theatre at Central Jakarta's Taman Ismail Marzuki.

The newspaper stresses the significance of the premiere, writing that "this first public screening should serve as the first of many public screenings for similar movies that attempt to debunk the lies - circulated for decades as a kind of creation myth - that the New Order regime fed Indonesians for 32 years".
