The General Security (الأمن العام) ordered the AUB Office of Student Affairs to cancel the screening. The documentary has been banned for “stimulating sectarian and partisan zealotries and disturbing civil peace.”

Upon further inquiry, the General Security stated that the film is banned even from private screening, although the law of 27 November 1947 on censorship states that the rule applies only to showing movies in cinemas, and not private screenings.
