The Hollywood Reporter – “The Director Roundtable” Video

The Hollywood Reporter – “The Director Roundtable” Video

We have most of the interview in the video archive but we will try to find the complete panel discussion interview. If you are able to you can watch it on Sunday, January 21 at the SundanceTV channel.

“I want this country to speak, but did I feel I had the right to be the one doing that?” Jolie said of making the film.

“When you direct, it’s going to be years of your life. I think you’re only going to be doing it well if you need to do it, and you need to do it well,” Angelina Jolie said of her latest film, First They Killed My Father during The Hollywood Reporter’s Director Roundtable.

“In Cambodia, this is a subject matter that has been debated. This history is not known. Internationally, it’s not known. It’s something that has made me upset when I was in the country. I’ve seen how it affects the people, and I have a son who deserves to know his history,” Jolie told the table while articulating her need to make the Cambodian-based historical feature. Jolie adopted her eldest son Maddox Jolie-Pitt from Cambodia in 2002. At the age of 16, Jolie-Pitt served as a producer on his mother’s film.

“I want this country to speak, but did I feel I had the right to be the one doing that? It was hard every day to know if I was good enough or the right person to do it,” Jolie said of making the film, which earned a Golden Globe nomination for best foreign film on Monday.

I felt so honored to be welcomed into another country,” Jolie said of Cambodia, “and to witness, and bear witness, and encourage, and share, and really put forward their history.”

Jolie began her career as an actress, winning a best supporting actress Oscar for her work in Girl, Interrupted and a best actress nomination for Changeling before her first feature narrative work as a director, In the Land of Blood and Honey. First They Killed My Father marks Jolie’s first major recognition for her directorial work.

The full Director Roundtable also features Guillermo del Toro, Denis Villeneuve, Greta Gerwig, Joe Wright and Patty Jenkins, and airs on SundanceTV, Sunday, Jan. 21. Tune in to THR.com/roundtables for more roundtables featuring talent from the year’s top films.

New press junket interview for “The Breadwinner”

New press junket interview for “The Breadwinner”

Angelina Jolie on her animated Oscar contender ‘The Breadwinner‘: ‘I hope this film does speak to young girls around the world’

From Belle to Rey to Wonder Woman, 2017 was a banner year for female heroes in mainstream Hollywood blockbusters. Sadly, most of the year’s major animated films didn’t exactly follow suit. With the exception of Cars 3‘s Cruz Ramirez, male heroes drove most of the antics in cartoons like The Boss Baby, The Lego Batman Movie, and even Coco. If you’re looking for an animated heroine on par with Diana — minus her Lasso of Truth and bullet-catching bracelets — look no further than The Breadwinner, the latest release from the internationally focused family friendly distributor Gkids and a dark-horse Oscar contender for the Best Animated Feature statue at this year’s Oscars. (The film is already vying for a Golden Globe this weekend.)

Directed by Nora Twomey and produced by Angelina Jolie, The Breadwinner tells the story of a young Afghan girl named Parvana, who defies the restrictive Taliban regime to support her family after her father is imprisoned. It may sound like challenging subject matter, but Jolie believes that Parvana’s heroism will resonate with audiences her age. “I hope this film does speak to young girls around the world, and young boys,” the Oscar-winning actress-turned-director remarks in this new interview clip exclusively premiering on Yahoo Entertainment.

Jolie has witnessed the film’s impact on children first hand, having previewed it for a group of young viewers and taken note of their reactions. “The first time a child is exposed to this kind of life… it moves them to want to value their education and their opportunity. It awakens a sense of that fight for human rights in young people.” Who knows? Maybe The Breadwinner could be the origin story for a new generation of real-life heroes.

The Breadwinner is currently playing in theaters. Watch the trailer below:
