Angelina Jolie Oscars
February 15, 2012 by staff
Angelina Jolie Oscars, The Hollywood star, 36, flew to the Bosnian city of Sarajevo for the premiere of In the Land of Blood And Honey – which she wrote and directed.
She was joined by proud partner Brad Pitt for the screening of the film – which focuses on a romance between a Serbian soldier and a Bosnian woman during the 1990s war in the region.
The mother-of-six was overcome with emotion after the screening as she was greeted by a rapturous standing ovation from the audience of 5,000 people – many of whom had lived through the war themselves.
As tears welled up in her eyes, she told the audience: “To see you receiving it so well means the world to me. I feel so deep for all of you in this country.”
Golden couple…Brad and Angelina
The Oscar-winner looked elegant in a flowing and demure black gown, with her hair styled into a simple up do for the event.
The United Nations Goodwill Ambassador also took the opportunity to address the ongoing unrest in Syria, insisting she hopes her film is seen as a “wake-up call” to the international community, as more needs to be done to help the country’s people.
She added, “I feel very strongly about the film and I believe that its core issue – which is the need for intervention and need for the world to pay attention to atrocities when they are happening – is very, very timely, especially with things that are happening in Syria today.
“It is very important that this film is out at this time. If this film points the finger at anybody it is the international community, so I hope it remains a wake-up call for them.”
