Angelina and Loung Ung went to the screening and Q&A of First They Killed My Father at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival yesterday, September 24. Angie seems to go for a lot of white at the moment and I think it suits her so good, both the ladies looked wonderful!
Angelina is featured in several magazines at the moment so I will also put the alerts in the sidebar. Please let us know if you know about more magazines out in the stores at the moment or that will be released shortly!

A radio/podcast interview with Angelina and Loung Ung that was recorded on the 12th of September in LA. Listen below or at the original source!
The film First They Killed My Father begins in 1975 Cambodia, during the rise of the Khmer Rouge. The hard-line communist regime aimed to deport an entire nation into the countryside and form an agrarian utopia — but their experiment failed. People were forced to work, and they were also tortured, starved and executed. In the end, around a quarter of the country’s population — roughly 2 million people — died.
First They Killed My Father was directed by Angelina Jolie, and it’s based on a memoir by human rights activist Loung Ung. Ung was 5 years old and living with her family in Phnom Penh when the Khmer Rouge arrived and essentially emptied the city. At first, her family managed to stay together, but then her older siblings were sent to a camp for teenagers. Not long after, they also came for her father. Ung’s mother decided Ung and her siblings would be safer if they left and pretended to be orphans, so she sent them away.
