Angelina visited the Zaatari Camp in Jordan

Angelina visited the Zaatari Camp in Jordan

Angelina visited the Zaatari Camp in Jordan today to meet Syrian refugees again. She had a shorter press conference there and later she was talking and meeting people. Below you can read her speech on such an important cause and also view a video and photos. You can view several videos in the video archive.

Remarks in Zataari Camp, as delivered:

“It is heartbreaking to return to Jordan and witness the levels of hardship and trauma among Syrian refugees as the war enters its eighth year.

We in UNHCR are deeply grateful to the Jordanian people, for their generosity and humanity towards the victims of the conflict.

Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq now host nearly 5 ½ million Syrian refugees between them.

They really are an example to the world, at a time when solidarity with refugees is in short supply.

We should be under no illusions that this is a crisis that has been out of control for years.

UNHCR does not have the funds to provide in full even the most basic necessities for survival for many families:

Last year, the UNHCR response for the Syria crisis was only 50 per cent funded.

And so far in 2018, it is only 7 per cent funded.

There is nothing more devastating for UNHCR staff than not to be able to give people the help they need and deserve.

After seven years of war, most Syrian refugees have exhausted any savings they had.

The vast majority of them already live below the poverty line, on less than three dollars a day.

In memory of Marcheline Bertrand

In memory of Marcheline Bertrand

Today we remember Angelina’s mother Marcheline Bertrand who Angelina loved deeply and cared so much about. Angelina has mentioned her mother in many interviews and haven’t had anything but kind things to say about her. She also decided to se her movie By the Sea in the 70’s because her mother loved that movie-era and she named the characters Vanessa and Roland Bertrand.

My mother was a full-time mother. She didn’t have much of her own career, her own life, her own experiences… everything was for her children. I will never be as good a mother as she was. She was just grace incarnate. She was the most generous, loving – she’s better than me. /Angelina Jolie

Here is a fanmade video to remember Marcheline by and a video with several clips of Angelina speaking about her mother:

IndieWire video interview with Angelina and Loung

IndieWire video interview with Angelina and Loung

There has been some things posted online about Angelina not getting the Oscar nomination and all of us fans obviously thinks she/they deserved it and wished that they would had received it. But the movie is amazing and nomination or not doesn’t take way that! 🙂

Loung Ung also posted this online:

The Oscars nominations were announced on Tuesday and FTKMF did not make this list. That’s okay. We are still proud and thrilled. We made the film we wanted and made it with love and integrity. And I wanted to honor my parents and believe I did this. Thank you everyone for your support.

Below is an interview from IndieWire with Angelina and Loung Ung.

Angelina Jolie on Catharsis in ‘First They Killed My Father,’ and Working With Her Son: Awards Season Spotlight Profile

“It could be traumatic, or it could be cathartic. And we insisted it would be cathartic,” Jolie said of directing the Cambodian Genocide drama.

First They Killed My Father,” Angelina Jolie’s gripping drama about a child surviving the Khmer Rouge, is the actress-turned-director’s finest film to date. The movie was rejected by the Oscars, receiving no nominations, though it was Cambodia’s official entry for Best Foreign Language Film — a fact that in no way diminishes the artistry and power of the film Jolie crafted from Cambodian author and activist’s Loung Ung’s best-selling memoir of the same name. The story had deep personal resonance; Jolie’s son, Maddox, is Cambodian by birth. The director said she felt a great responsibility to get the story right — not just for her son, but for all Cambodians.

“When you’re a director, you don’t wanna feel you’ve let down your team, or you’ve let down the country, or you’ve let down the family,” Jolie said in an interview for IndieWire’s Spotlight Awards series. It was her son Maddox, who at 16 years old now has his first producer credit for the movie, who suggested she make “First They Killed My Father.” “[He] was the reason we finally did it,” she added.

“The majority of our crew were survivors… So everybody was affected,” Jolie said. “It could be traumatic, or it could be cathartic, and we insisted it would be cathartic. It had to not be easy. Because we were fighting to make something that mattered, so it had to be a little difficult.”

The story follows Ung’s brutal childhood surviving the deadly Khmer Rouge in 1970s Cambodia; Ung adapted the script from her memoir. “[She] made it safe…for everybody to have their moments,” said Ung. “There were times we had to stop shooting, because people were suffering from post-traumatic stress, and Angie was great.”

Even if Jolie did not get the Oscar nod she was hoping for, “First They Killed My Father” was warmly received, and went a long way toward marking Jolie as a director with vision and skill. Not only is the movie an enormous accomplishment for a woman who wears many hats in Hollywood, but it’s a tale close to her heart. “This movie’s about family…It’s how warm it is, and what it means to have a family, and how that forms us, and how that helps us heal and survive.”

Heal, survive, and hopefully flourish.
