Angelina to star in documentary about women directors

New documentary in which Angelina will star alongside several other female directors, the lovely Tilda Swinton will narrate and Mark Cousins will direct.

In among Venice’s typically stellar documentary line-up was Northern Irish director Mark Cousins’ next film: Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema.

More details are emerging today about the episodic 16-hour documentary, whose first four hours will debut on the Lido and be narrated by Tilda Swinton. The film will celebrate female directors from around the world.

The project is produced by Hopscotch Films, with Dogwoof handling world sales. Swinton will also serve as an executive producer on the movie, which is debuting in Venice’s Classics strand.

Cousins writes and directs, with John Archer from Hopscotch producing. Four years in the making and still in production, the finished film will be ready in spring 2019.

The epic undertaking is made up of forty chapters to be narrated by Swinton and other leading women in cinema who have yet to be announced. According to the production, “using almost a thousand film extracts from thirteen decades and five continents, the film will show how films are made, shot and edited; how stories are shaped and how movies depict life, love, politics, humour and death, all through the lens of some of the world’s greatest women directors.”

Among female directors spotlighted in the film will be Agnes Varda, Jane Campion, Angelina Jolie, Lynne Ramsay, Sally Potter, Lois Weber, Anne Hui, Safi Faye, Mania Akbari, Binka Zhelyazkova and Clio Barnard.

Cousins’ previous movies include The Eyes Of Orson Welles, which played at Cannes this year, The Story Of Film: An Odyssey and I Am Belfast.

Angelina writes article about Srebrenica for CNN

Angelina writes article about Srebrenica for CNN

Angelina wrote an article for CNN and she speaks about the genocide of Srebrenica, which happened 23 years ago in the region of Bosnia. You can read the article below or in the press archive.

News came today that Hatidža Mehmedović, who survived the war in Bosnia and led the Association of the Mothers of Srebrenica, had died in a hospital in Sarajevo.

I met Hatidža four years ago when I visited the Srebrenica Memorial, where the victims of the genocide — the worst massacre on European soil since the Holocaust — are buried. I remember it vividly. Sitting in a circle of other bereaved and widowed mothers of Srebrenica, quietly and with the utmost dignity, she told her story.

She painted a picture of life before the war, with her husband Abdullah and their two sons Azmir and Almir, who were 21 and 18 years old. She described the terrible days in July 1995, when they were forcibly separated from her and sent to their deaths, along with at least 8,000 other innocent men and boys. As well as her husband and sons, Hatidža lost her father, her two brothers, and scores of her extended family members.

Those who carried out the genocide went to considerable lengths to conceal or destroy the bodies of the victims. For 15 years, Hatidža searched for the remains of her family. She was one of the first survivors to return to Srebrenica. She lived bereaved and alone, facing threats and intimidation, in a climate of persistent attempts to deny the genocide.

Statement on anniversary of Srebrenica massacre

Angelina gives exclusive statement to Remembering Srebrenica on 23rd Anniversary of Genocide.

“The passage of time cannot diminish the pain felt by survivors of the war in Bosnia or the horror of the Srebrenica genocide. I have never met more brave, dignified and resilient women than the Mothers of Srebrenica, many still searching for their lost sons and husbands 23 years after the genocide. My thoughts and my heart are with them, and with all survivors in Bosnia today.

I hope this anniversary will remind leaders in Europe, and the North Atlantic Alliance as a whole, of the importance of helping Bosnia to join the EU and NATO – giving the people of Bosnia-Herzegovina the greater opportunity they deserve, and securing the country, and the region, against future instability.

Srebrenica stands as an indelible warning of the consequences when we fail to take sides when innocent civilians are threatened with aggression. It is also a reminder that the international community can act together, as NATO eventually did in Bosnia, to end the conflict and protect civilian life.

On this the 23rd anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica, I hope we will be inspired to renew our sense of responsibility towards others, and our confidence in our ability to act collectively to prevent genocide and war crimes and defend international law. It is in our hands and would be the best way of honouring the memory of those who died in Srebrenica.”

11th July marks the 23rd anniversary of the genocide of Bosnian Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica, selected for murder because of their Islamic faith.

Dr Waqar Azmi OBE, Chair of Remembering Srebrenica said:

“Our theme this year is ‘Acts of Courage’ which serves as a reminder that hope and the common bonds of humanity can triumph in the darkest of times. We are all invited to draw strength and inspiration from those who, during the genocide and ethnic cleansing in Europe’s worst atrocity since the second world war, were bold enough to resist an ideology of division, protect their neighbours and speak out for truth and justice.

The baton of courage has now been passed on. It is up to us to learn the lessons from Srebrenica.
