In the Land of Blood and Honey














Jolie has not yet notified the Bosnian government if she will attend a ceremony in her honour on May 3, reports The AP.

The actress-filmmaker spoke about her growing interest in the Bosnian Civil War while promoting In The Land of Blood and Honey earlier this year.

"Bosnia has always been a situation and a conflict that I'd never been completely able to understand, so [the film] was also a chance for me to dip deeper and learn and educate myself on the concept," Jolie explained.

Jolie personally screened In The Land of Blood and Honey before 5,000 viewers in Sarajevo in February.

In the Land of Blood and Honey earned Jolie an NCAAP Image Award for 'Outstanding Foreign Motion Picture' as well as a Golden Globe nomination.
