In addition to the performance Folkhälsan organized a seminar on the theme of sexual abuse. Som vi minns det was made into a film and premiered in 2013. The film was screened in Green Film Festival in Seuol, in Lisbon International Film Festival, in Aab International Film Festival, in Västerås Film Festival and in Scandinavian International Film Festival.
