Angelina Jolie responds to criticism of Bosnian directorial debut

Angelina Jolie has responded to the controversy surrounding her Bosnian film, insisting she is supported by the entire cast and the country’s leaders.

The movie portrays a love story between a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman just before the 1992-95 Balkans conflict.

“There’s one person who has a gripe,” she said. “The absolute majority of the people, population, the cast, prime minister, president have been extremely supportive.”

Bosnian women, who were victims of sexual violence during the conflict have written to the United Nations saying Jolie is an “ignorant” and that didn’t deserve her position as a goodwill ambassador.

The members of the Women Victims of War association refused Jolie’s offer of a face-to-face meeting to discuss their issues.

The filming was initially stopped for a while when Bosnian government officials canceled her filming permit for incomplete paperwork.

Initially, Jolie, who also wrote the screenplay, said she wanted to express her anger over how long the international community took to intervene in conflicts.

“It kept leaning toward Yugoslavia at the time, I wanted to learn more about it and the people, the more I read and learnt I was drawn to that part of the world,” she said.

“I met artists from that part of the world and found they were extraordinary for what they’d gone through, so I wanted to give them a platform.”
