Angelina Jolie wants more love in Bosnia
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I don’t really react to all of the atrocities in current events, mainly because I suffer from numbness in hearing about various countries that are experiencing genocide or other horrible events. It’s sad, but sometimes when we’re so far removed from those things and we hear about it so often in the media, we slowly stop caring. With that in mind, I think it’s great that Angelina Jolie still dedicates so much time to helping other countries and bringing attention to their problems. As part of her efforts with UNICEF, Jolie made a trip to Bosnia and announced she would be filming a love story set in Bosnia. The story will be set during the 1992-1995 Bosnian War and she made a point to say it will be a love story, not a political statement.
She went on to mention that the film’s cast will consist of many ethnicities from the former Yugoslavia and will feature mostly a local cast.
