One more event coming up for Angelina and this time it’s the UNCA Awards and she will be the guest of honor. The event will take pleace on December 15 in New York.
A new video released from UNHCR with Angelina speaking out for the children in Nigeria. Some of the interview material seems to be from the same date as when she was doing press for First They Killed My Father.
Angelina Jolie, UNHCR Special Envoy, pays tribute to an education hero who is standing up for the rights of displaced children in Nigeria.
The photos and the text is already here! And it’s Angelina writing the article herself and we are in awe of our multitalented and intelligent Angie! She writes about women’s right all over the world and also about animals and the environment. It’s a beautiful and inspiring text, that you most definitely have to read!
As Harper’s Bazaar celebrates its 150th anniversary, Jolie shares her thoughts on women’s rights and our responsibility toward the environment.
Actress and filmmaker Angelina Jolie is known for using her voice to champion human rights causes around the world. Her latest producing project, The Breadwinner, tells the story of an 11-year-old Afghan girl named Parvana who dresses as a boy in order to feed her family in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, where women were not allowed to work or attend school. As we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of Harper’s Bazaar, Jolie shares her thoughts on women’s rights today and our responsibility toward each other and our environment.
When I was asked to write for this special anniversary edition of Bazaar, I imagined a female reader of the magazine 150 years ago, in 1867. If she’d been able to see us—today’s women—what would she have made of us?

And the photos are simply breathtaking! They were taken by Alexi Lubomirski when he came to Namibia with Angelina this year.
And here is a behind the scenes video from the photoshoot:
The 2017 Nansen Refugee Award ceremony in Geneva on October 2 honoured Zannah Mustapha for founding a school in Maiduguri, Nigeria, the epicentre of the Boko Haram insurgency. In 2011 Angelina was honoured as well! View several interesting interviews and the event itself at the Facebook page and you can read more about the event at the official UNHCR page.
Angelina couldn’t attend the event but a new short film/documentary called The Others starring and music composed by Miyavi (previously in Unbroken) was released and Angelina is the director!
Angelina was also on video stream for the event and you can view a video with both Angelina and also Miyavi’s concert and interview here.
“The courage it takes to defend children’s’ rights to education in the face of Boko Haram is extraordinary. Zannah Mustapha has brought light to a region that has been terrorised for years.”
“Mr Mustapha, you are an inspiration. I hope this award encourages you and others to continue this vital work.”
