ANGELINA JOLIE is of course best known as an actress but after establishing herself in that arena she has gone on to direct. Her first film was a documentary A Place in Time where around the world several filmmakers participated in filming at the same moment.
Her next film, the narrative feature In the Land of Blood and Honey (2011) was a passion project that led her to directing subsequent projects – most recently a film in Cambodia where she previously worked as an actor and from where she adopted one of her children.
