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.

Here is the full interview:

“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 for more roundtables featuring talent from the year’s top films.

The Los Angeles Times – ‘The Directors Roundtable’ interview

The Directors Roundtable interview made by The Los Angeles Times has been released and you can read it on our press archive. It’s a very interesting interview, so be sure not to miss out on it! Some more photos was posted from the photoshoot as well and Angelina looks stunning, as usual.

Go to The Los Angeles Times website to view several videos from the interview.

The Envelope gathered seven filmmakers for its annual Directors Roundtable — with the strongest representation of women to date. The wide-ranging conversation, led by The Times’ Mark Olsen, included Darren Aronofsky (“mother!”), Sean Baker (“The Florida Project”), Kathryn Bigelow (“Detroit”), Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”), Angelina Jolie (“First They Killed My Father”) and Jordan Peele (“Get Out”). The group found commonalities in their works, the outsider stories, the power of the parable, the emotional truths. And then there was that director who called Aronofsky’s “mother!” weird, how’d that go over? Here’s an excerpt from their conversation edited for length and clarity.
