A Mongolian documentary has become the winner of the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) Award for Mid-Length Documentary, local media reported on Saturday, citing the documentary's director Nomin Lkhagvasuren.

The 52-minute documentary titled "Wheel" tells the stories of suicide survivors and family members of those who have taken their lives.

Hopelessness, loneliness, alcoholism and the harshness of life have led to many suicide cases in Mongolia, according to the documentary.

The IDFA is the world's largest documentary film festival held annually since 1988 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and screens more films than any other event of its kind.

The IDFA 2020, which began on Nov. 18, will continue until Dec. 6.
