It’s time for Angelina Jolie‘s directorial debut, or if you prefer, an upcoming Bosnian war movie titled In the Land of Blood and Honey.
You already know some details about the whole thing, but I’m sure you don’t know that FilmDistrict will release this project on December 23 in the U.S. And, that’s not all! Check out the rest of this report for more details.
Thanks to Variety, we know that In the Land of Blood and Honey is set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War in the ‘90s. This bold new film illustrates the consequences of the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken with conflict.
Jolie explained: “The film is specific to the Bosnian War, but it’s also universal. I wanted to tell a story of how human relationships and behavior are deeply affected by living inside a war.”
Movie features a completely local cast, most of whom were children of the war.
As you already know, the cast includes Zana Marjanovic, Goran Kostic and Rade Serbedzija, and the film was simultaneously shot in English and their native language.
During the time of the war the language spoken was Serbo-Croatian and is now referred to as BHS.
“The former Yugoslavia has a rich history of dramatic arts. The cast was extraordinary. I was privileged and honored to work with them and I am very excited for everyone to see their immense talent,” revealed Jolie.
We’re excited about this one too! And you, let us know what you think, and stay tuned!
