The film became widely publicized in 2014 when its producers submitted it for screening at a Tel Aviv-set event called DocAviv in May 2014. Several of the documentary's participants, including Danny Glover and Ms. Boggs herself, angrily stated that they supported the anti-Israel Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement and demanded the film be pulled from an event taking place in Israel.
