Angelina Jolie Arrives in Sarajevo to Meet Victims of Bosnian War

Angelina Jolie holds an umbrella over her head as she lands on Thursday (March 27) in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The 38-year-old director, actress, and humanitarian landed with British Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs William Hague, who she traveled with on their mission.

“We are here to meet victims of the war in Bosnia, female and male survivors of rape who carry a terrible burden,” Angelina said of their visit. “The use of rape as a weapon of war is one of the great injustices of our time. For too long the world has tolerated these crimes, and left survivors to struggle in the shadows. Our goal is to bring forward the voices of the survivors of these crimes and to ask the world to stand with them and against impunity.”

    Angelina is just stunning in the airport video. That’s what you get when you are simply naturally beautiful – with no effort, her hair unstyled, in the rain, holding her own umbrella in the wind.
    .
    Brings a smile to my face to see her use her time so productively. Her boundless energy and output is admirable. Kudos to her.
    .
    Seeing her there makes me wonder if that foolish woman, Bakira Hesicec, ever sought rapprochement with Angie or offered an apology for her inexcusably demeaning and incredibly counter productive behavior toward Angie. At some point she had to have realized how wrong she was unless her agenda was entirely selfish.

    I have to applaud her when I think of the preparation you know she puts into these trips on top of the fact she got her footage of Unbroken ready to show in time for CinemaCon. She is amazing and disciplined. What a role model for her family.

    Brad Pitt Supports Rachel Boynton Documentary ‘Big Men’

    While Sony unveiled the first footage from Brad Pitt’s WWII drama “Fury” at CinemaCon on Wednesday, the actor promoted a much smaller film in Los Angeles, his exec-produced documentary “Big Men.”

    Pitt and writer-director-producer Rachel Boynton screened the oil doc, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, to a small audience at Sundance Sunset Cinema.

    It took Boynton about six years to make the film. She spent a year and a half traveling to West Africa before even beginning shooting.

    “There were multiple crews that were arrested and deported from Nigeria — foreign film crews — while we were shooting and I believe ours was the only one that was not arrested and deported, which is something I’m proud of,” Boynton said. “But that’s in large part due to the relationships that I developed over the year and a half that I was traveling back and forth.”

    Pitt and his Plan B production company got on board when the pic was still focused on Nigeria. Boynton later shifted gears when Texas-based oil startup Kosmos Energy allowed her to follow its journey to pumping “first oil” from an offshore oil site (Jubilee Field) they discovered in Ghana.

    Pitt joked that he could have shot 12 films in the time it took to make the documentary.

    “It’s this staggering endeavor to me to stick with the subject this long and follow it so deep. It takes time to devolve that kind of elegance and structure to tell this story and to assign no side to it and let the people stand for themselves. I think it’s an incredible feat,” he said.

    After her second trip to Nigeria, Boynton came to the conclusion that she needed backing from someone like Pitt if she wanted to get the film off the ground.

    “I realized that nobody knew who I was and nobody was going to take me seriously unless I had somebody believe in me, like Brad,” she said. “I think the support of Plan B made a huge difference in terms of getting the film made because it made people take me seriously as a filmmaker.”

    Pitt said he’s “dying to see” more investigative reporting of this caliber that doesn’t draw distinct boundaries between heroes and villains.

    “We’re always looking, certainly from Hollywood, (for) this idea of good guys and bad guys,” he said. “We’re also dealing in a media that’s more focused on sound bites and a sensational headline. This is the complete antithesis of that and what we need more of, and it comes from a curious mind investigating a complex subject.”

    Boynton also gained unprecedented access to a Nigerian militant group called the Deadly Underdogs, most of whom were thrilled by the idea of appearing in a movie.

    “The film is called ‘Big Men’ for a reason and the tag line is ‘everyone wants to be big,’” she said. “The basic idea in the movie is that being big has to do with getting a lot of money or getting a very big reputation. Nobody was making money off of this film, but the notion of reputation is very important. People choose to be in movies in general because they want to be heard.”

    For Pitt, having a voice in Hollywood also comes with responsibility.

    “You need to have world experience to know what you’re speaking about; sometimes we’re too quick to speak without having done all the research,” Pitt said. “We get to sit in a seat now where I can give some assistance — very little in this case — to projects that I think are worthwhile. They speak to our time, speak to us as human beings and point us in a better direction.”

    http://amanpour.blogs.cnn.com/2014/03/27/angelina-jolie-puts-spotlight-on-syrian-refugees-as-u-n-refugees-chief-warns-lebanon-could-collapse-under-burden/

    Video : Angelina Jolie puts spotlight on Syrian refugees as U.N. Refugees chief warns Lebanon could collapse under burden

    Lebanon could collapse under the weight of the massive influx of Syrian refugees, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres warned in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that aired Thursday.

    Without economic and financial support, and an increased effort to share the burden of Syrian refugees, “Lebanon [does] not [have] the possibility to go on with the present situation,” Guterres said.

    Angelina Jolie, a special envoy for the UNHCR, is highlighting the plight of Syrian refugees.

    She recently visited with a family living in a Lebanese refugee camp, speaking with a young child, Hala, and her five siblings.

    Hala saw her mother killed under their collapsed home, and their father is missing and presumed dead.

    “Twenty-five percent of the Lebanese population today is Syrian,” Guterres said. “We have more Syrian students in Lebanese public schools than Lebanese students.”

    “Lebanon has serious problems with electricity and water, and largely because of this huge increase in population; the health system is totally overburdened, and the security implications of the Syrian crisis to Lebanon are absolutely dramatic.”

    “Nobody can afford the collapse of Lebanon in the present moment.”

    Lebanon has felt the brunt of the Syrian conflict, with just under a million refugees, according to the U.N.

    Turkey and Jordan are both caring for about half a million refugees each; Iraq and Egypt are also carrying a significant burden.

    “I remember in Jordan another child, a 4-year-old child, a boy,” Guterres recalled. “We were there for 20 minutes in his family’s tent. And he was constantly shooting with a toy gun.”

    “Nobody managed to calm him down because violence is so deeply now in his way of life.”

    The UNHCR is trying to help those children with “psychosocial support” but that is often ineffective given the extent of some of the trauma, Guterres admitted.

    “When we see this tragedy, when we see this generation, it really breaks our hearts, because it’s not only these children; it’s the future of Syria that is being completely undermined.”

    Guterres’ mandate as U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees is humanitarian, but as a former Portuguese prime minister, he says the security implications of the conflict are hard to miss.

    “I’m sure now the biggest threat, not only to regional stability but to global peace and security that we have faced since many, many decades ago.”

    “Recently in a meeting with the minister of home affairs of Europe, their main concern was not the number of refugees coming into Europe; it was the number of European citizens going into Syria to fight in Syria now.”

    “And that one day will come – radicalized, hardened, and potentially a security threat for their own countries.”

    It is absolutely essential, Guterres said, that the international community overcome its divisions and work to end the conflict.

    “I have never seen any major crisis in the world being solved without a lot of discreet, behind-the-scenes diplomacy.”

    “What is for me dramatic in Syria is that I don’t see that activity behind the scenes.”

    It is vital that all countries with a stake – whether politically or militarily or financially, and whether with the government or opposition – play a role.

    He cited the U.S., Russia, Iran, Saudia Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey to name just a few.

    “I believe it’s absolutely essential that these countries all understand that today this is a war nobody is winning,” he said. “It is clear that both the government and the opposition cannot survive without the support of the key stakeholders around the conflict.”

    “This is becoming a serious threat to everybody.”

    Angie and Brad beautiful love Says:

    i want to cry, it´s revolting to see this children life and all the cruelty they have to endure.

    We don´t imagined what Angie is feeling looking in to the eyes of that kids. Angie is a beautiful, glamorous and rich actress and she is in that tent, in that dirty camp, seeing the misery and the pain of many many traumatized children, Humans.

    How can we talk about Angie lovers and bisexuality and drugs and past when we know it´s impossible for Angie to think in trivial and secundarie things when she is dealin with really dramatic problems.

    Are we insane all. Angie don´t have time neither have motive to play doctors any more.

    Angie head is already formed, she will not return to anything she have done in the past, she is too advance to any person in LA or even in America.

    Angie game is a global game, is with the world leaders , is working to change the world for better.

    Angie is a World Leader. Period.

    The fans of Angie and the bully-haters in particular need to understand Angie is a very special woman and she is to far away from this little gossip intrigues, she is dealing and spending her energy in world problems.

    Angie love questions are resolved 10 years ago when she find Brad. After that she dedicated all her energy to other more important things.

    Angie is dedicated to solve Planetary problems.

    @groundcontrol: Everything I read about that Bakira woman made it clear the woman was only using Angie’s film for her own selfish agenda. The rumor was, she was planning to run for a public office and wanted publicity and attention, and even people from other parts of the world know that the easiest way to get attention for yourself is to drop Angelina Jolie’s or Brad Pitt’s name.
