The film, which has been translated literally as “Nomadic Land”, continues to win many Film Critics Association awards and a number of film festivals that it opened with winning the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival last year.

The movie screenings were delayed in cinemas due to the Covid-19 outbreak, but it will start in Britain and other places in the world, starting from the middle of this month, and the film has appeared internationally on the Disney Plus movie screening platform since April 30.
