Angelina Jolie's directorial debut tackles Bosnian War

Help

Angelina Jolie's directorial debut, a controversial film based around a doomed love story during the Bosnian War, has premiered in Sarajevo.

She wrote as well as directed In the Land of Blood and Honey, and made two versions - one in English and one in Bosnian.

The city was besieged for 40 months during the conflict, and 20 years on many felt their story had not been fully told, which helped create massive demand for tickets to the screening.
