An actor, director, producer, and humanitarian with unstoppable dynamism, Angelina Jolie joins us to discuss her most recent projects, First They Killed My Father and The Breadwinner, at the Festival this year.
In Conversation With... Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie has forged a boundary-pushing path as an actor, director, producer, and humanitarian. Jolie's roles in Hackers, Gia, and her Academy Award—winning performance in Girl, Interrupted were marked by a transfixing onscreen presence and a restless, mercurial energy that earned her early recognition in the film industry. Having made a deep imprint in Hollywood through lead roles in the Lara Croft franchise, Salt, and Maleficent, and her acclaimed performances in A Mighty Heart and Changeling, Jolie has subsequently devoted herself to humanitarianism and socially conscious projects. For over 15 years she has given her time and energy as a dedicated UNHCR Ambassador and Special Envoy. As a storyteller, Jolie routinely shakes up the status quo, her passion fuelling such poignant directorial works as In the Land of Blood and Honey and Unbroken. At this year's Festival we present her most recent projects, First They Killed My Father and The Breadwinner.
