Angelina Jolie: 'This Week with Christiane Amanpour' Interview!

Angelina Jolie opens up about her upcoming directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, in a new interview from This Week with Christiane Amanpour.

The 36-year-old actress was joined by the stars of the film, Zana Marjanovic and Vanessa Glodjo, to speak about the powerful new film.

“I was thinking and meditating on these international themes of violence against women, lack of intervention and how human beings are changed and warped by war and how some people come out stronger and some people are truly broken,” Angelina said.

“Our fear is the silence, our fear is the ignorance. Our fear is that people won’t know what happened. And being ignorant about what happened leads a chance that it may happen again….It’s a stain that will always remain,” Zana added. “It kind of — it’s a scar. I think that’s maybe the best way to describe it.”

More of Angelina‘s interview will air Monday (December 5) on Good Morning America – be sure to check it out!

Women for Women International to co-host premiere of new Angelina Jolie movie “In the Land of Blood and Honey”
Oscar-winning actress will attend the screening, which sheds light on the Bosnian War Organization has been operating in the region since 1993

Women for Women International announced today they are partnering with the Council on Foreign Relations to co-host Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie’s new film, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” on Monday, December 5 in New York City.

Women for Women International, which was founded because of the Bosnian War in 1993 and the rape of over 20,000 women there, is an organization dedicated to helping women of all ethnicities who’ve been affected by war to rebuild their lives. Fittingly, the first office they opened was in war-torn Bosnia and Herzegovina back in 1994, and the organization has since expanded their work into seven other countries of conflict including Afghanistan, Iraq and Congo. Women for Women International Founder Zainab Salbi said, “It’s ironic after nearly two decades of working in war-torn countries as we are in Congo, rape is still a fundamental issue. It’s time this stopped once and for all, and we’re glad ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ brings light back to this hugely important issue. It reminds the world about the atrocities women face in war and that we are a long way from stopping these atrocities.”

Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War that tore the Balkan region apart in the 1990s, the movie tells the story of Danijel and Ajla, two Bosnians from different sides of the brutal ethnic conflict. The film portrays the incredible emotional, moral, and physical toll that the war takes on individuals as well as the consequences that stems from the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken by conflict.

For nearly two decades Women for Women International has been helped over 316,000 women survivors of war to move from crisis and poverty, to stability and self-sufficiency. Although the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina ended more than 15 years ago, it toppled the economy and political system and shattered lives. Women are still struggling today: to heal, to recover and to reunite. Women for Women International’s programs in Bosnia and Herzegovina include direct financial aid, rights awareness classes, job and business skills training, and emotional support, thereby promoting viable civil societies.

The Bosnian War claimed over 100,000 lives and over two million people were driven from their homes. In partnering with the Council on Foreign Relations for the premiere of “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” Women for Women International hopes people will be reminded how victims of war, particularly women, need ongoing support in post conflict countries.

Angelina Jolie & Kids Go to See the Muppets

Angelina Jolie & Kids Go to See the Muppets | Angelina Jolie

Kermit, Fozzie and Miss Piggy, please meet Angelina Jolie and son Pax, 8, and daughters Zahara, 6, and Shiloh, 5, who were out on a movie date in Manhattan on Saturday afternoon.

Their flick of choice? The family holiday hit The Muppets.

One witness at the Clearview Cinemas on East 62nd Street told PEOPLE that the concession-stand snacks of choice were five orders of popcorn, five cups of Sprite and one box of Twizzlers. (Another adult woman accompanied the group to the show.)

An observer inside the mulitiplex added that the quintet sat right in the middle of the auditorium and that Jolie, 36, was “really down to earth. When they came out [afterwards] she was talking to the kids about the movie and asking them

Angelina is such a beauty! Love this family so much.

Not even sure why some of my post aren’t going through Jared? Could you fix the problem!!

AJ – Intelligent Beautiful and Caring

Always beautiful
inside and out

I’m so happy that Angelina had the courage to speak out on this terrible thing that happend to so many women who have no voice. I hope that this film is heard loud and clear around the world. Angelina has done her research and spoken to many that I’m sure this movie will be talked about for years to come.

Angelina will be on Good Morning America tomorrow morning and Nightline tomorrow night.

So glad there’ll be more of the interview on GMA and Nightline, I was left wanting more. She’s a beautiful woman with an even more beautiful soul.

Reposting – Enjoyed Angelina’s interview with Christiane Amanpour. And the beauty of this interview was the absence of tabloid journalism that Bob Simon dipped into on 60 Minutes. That’s the beauty of interviewing with a respected news reporter and journalist like Christiane. She doesn’t lower her standards with that tabloid shite. She goes straight to point allowing Angelina to talk more about her film project. It was definitely more content rich about ITLOBAH than the Bob Simon interview. Angelina Jolie is such a eloquent speaker. Ticky and her hens are clucking up a storm right now. Lol! Chistiane will have more of her interview with Angelina on Good Morning America tomorrow!

Interview transcript snippets This Week/Nightline

JOLIE:You see these great pictures. There’s a great photograph that I had in the office. You remember with the woman? She’s got the pearls, and she’s dressed. And she’s done her hair. And it’s just, you may shoot at me, but you will not remove my humanity, my dignity, my self, my person. I am going to continue to keep my head up.

4 Clips and Over 30 New Images from Angelina Jolie’s IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY

Last week, we brought you this stylish poster from Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey. Now we have a host of new images and clips to share with you from the Bosnian war drama. Set against a backdrop of the Bosnian War in the 1990s, the story centers on the relationship between a Serbian soldier, Danijel (Goran Kostic) and a Bosnian native, Ajla (Zana Marjanovic). In the Land of Blood and Honey explores how the dynamics between the two change with the outset of the war, in which Ajla becomes a captive at a camp overseen by Danijel. Also starring Rade Serbedzija, the film will be released both in English and BHS, the native language of Bosnia. In the Land of Blood and Honey opens in limited release on December 23rd with a wider release in January. Hit the jump to check out the clips and images.

The clips and images from In the Land of Blood and Honey can be found below. Click here to get caught up on all our previous coverage. Here’s the synopsis for In the Land of Blood and Honey:

“In the Land of Blood and Honey” is a melancholy drama set during Bosnia’s 1992-95 civil war and follows a Christian Serb (Goran Kostic) and a Bosniak woman (Zana Marjanovic) whose lives are torn apart when violence flares between ethnic and religious groups.

McGreedy and McNeedy borrow air time and wasted space.

@screenplay stolen? naww: She didn’t stole anything. The guy, when she started filming, said that she took his idea from is book and now it’s an article. Beside, the plot of love between two people from different camps when in war is one of the most used. That man just wants attention

Beauty and brains. The whole package !
