Angelina calls for investment for Syrian refugees

Angelina went to the Domiz Camp, set in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq close to the border to Syria. She meet refugees who lives in the camp and she held a press conference which you can view in the video below.

The world is failing to properly invest in the Syrian refugee crisis and families, women, and children are suffering terribly as a result, UN refugee agency special envoy Angelina Jolie says.

The Hollywood actress was visiting the Domiz Camp, in the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Region of Iraq, which is home to 33,000 Syrian refugees displaced by seven years of civil war.

Funding received by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to help refugees from the Syrian conflict fell sharply this year from 2017 when the agency received only 50 per cent of the funds it needed, Jolie told a news conference on Sunday.

“There are terrible human consequences. When there is even not the bare minimum of aid, refuge families cannot receive adequate medical treatment. Women and girls are left vulnerable to sexual violence, many children cannot go to school, and we squander the opportunity to invest in refugees,” she said.

Angelina visits refugees in Mosul, Iraq

Angelina Jolie visits Mosul, urges world not to forget the people of the city and warns of the danger of delay in reconstruction and recovery

UNHCR Special Envoy meets families who survived years of terror and displacement and who are now striving to rebuild their homes and lives.

UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie today visited West Mosul, less than a year after the city’s liberation in June and July 2017. The visit marked Jolie’s 61st mission – and her fifth visit to Iraq – with the UN Refugee Agency since 2001. She arrived in the city on the second day of Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday marking the end of Ramadan.

Jolie walked among the bombed-out buildings that line the narrow streets of the Old City and met displaced families to discuss efforts to rebuild the city and the needs of the returning population.

West Mosul was held captive by ISIS for three years. The combat operation to re-take the city was the largest and longest urban battle since World War II, and the wreckage reminiscent of Dresden. Civilians faced aerial bombardment, artillery barrage, cross-fire, snipers, and unexploded ordnance. Hundreds of thousands of people were subjected to siege-like conditions, used as human shields or targeted as they fled the city. Large swathes of West Mosul were flattened. Many residents are now slowly returning, to scenes of complete destruction. Like residents of other former ISIS strongholds, they have suffered nearly unprecedented levels of psychological trauma.

Jolie Talks Leakage of Information Regarding Custody

We really hope that the family will get to solve this in private from now on. Our thoughts are with them!

The release of information on a new custody deal between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt by the couple’s six children received a fervent reaction from the actress, who called it “delusional” and “deplorable.”

According to official documents obtained by “The Blast” and reviewed by “ABC News”, the judge who takes care of the couple’s divorce made several demands aimed at ensuring Pitt’s proximity to the children, of which Jolie has custody total. However, the 43-year-old Oscar-winning actress stood on Wednesday morning (13). In a statement provided to ABC News the representative of the actress says:

“This deceptive leak is not in the best interests of children. From the beginning, Angelina has focused on her health and her needs, which is why it was so important that this last audience was conducted in private. It is deplorable that someone, for their own selfish reasons, leaked selective portions of the court’s confidential and sealed record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really going on.”

Pitt’s rep did not comment.

Angelina Jolie & David Oyelowo To Star In Fantasy “Come Away”

A new project for Angelina and this time it’s a movie called Come Away which is meant to be a prequel the classic stories Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. We would love Angelina to take part in something like this! Angie will also be a producer and you can read more about the project here.

Angelina Jolie and David Oyelowo are in talks to star in Come Away, a fantasy drama that will mark the live-action debut of Brenda Chapman, the Oscar-winning director and co-writer of the Pixar film Brave.

Marissa Kate Goodhill wrote the script, and UK-based Fred Films is producing with Oyelowo’s Yoruba Saxon Productions. Oyelowo, Leesa Kahn, James Spring and Andrea Keir are producing and Michelle Manning will be executive producer. The plan is for Come Away to shoot initially in the UK, with Jolie joining the shoot in Los Angeles in the fall. Jolie is next set to star in Maleficent 2 for Disney.

Come Away is imagined as a prequel to Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. Before Alice went to Wonderland, and before Peter became Pan, they were brother and sister. When their eldest brother dies in a tragic accident, they each seek to save their parents (Jolie & Oyelowo) from their downward spirals of despair until finally they are forced to choose between home and imagination. This sets the stage for their iconic journeys into Wonderland and Neverland.

“Angelina and David are going to bring a beautiful chemistry and depth to this magical story, giving audiences a wonderful step outside the expected,” Chapman said.

Said screenwriter Goodhill: “Brenda is a singular storyteller. Her decades of experience in creating rich fantasy worlds populated by complex characters make her a dream director for this project, which explores how fantasy functions as a way to cope with reality. Her thoughtful approach to filmmaking and indomitable talent make her the perfect person to bring this story to life.”

The film is co-represented by UTA and Endeavor Content.

Jolie is repped by UTA and Sloane Offer; Oyelowo is repped by Hamilton Hoddell, Inphenate and CAA; Chapman is repped by WME; and Goodhill is repped by Jamie Coghill at Surpin & Mayersohn.
