What kind of star power does being Angelina Jolie allow her to do? Make a film in Bosnia about the Bosnian War in the ’90s with no stars, apparently, as the trailer for her debut feature In The Land of Blood & Honey has been released.
Plot Summary: “In the Land of Blood & 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.
“In the Land of Blood & Honey” features a completely local cast, most of whom were children of the war. 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.
