Angelina Jolie to direct Netflix feature film

netflix-new-logo-red-on-whiteNetflix announced today Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie will direct a feature-length film based on war memoirs from Cambodian author/activist Loung Ung. Titled “First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers,” the film will recall Ung’s experience as a child soldier during Cambodia in 1975.

“It deepened forever my understanding of how children experience war and are affected by the emotional memory of it. And it helped me draw closer still to the people of Cambodia, my son’s [Maddox] homeland,” said Angelina Jolie.

Netflix plans to release the film on their streaming platform exclusively in late 2016, but will also show the film at major film festivals. Jolie’s Cambodian-born son Maddox will be involved in the production, although further details were not provided.

Jolie won the Oscar for “Best Actress in a Supporting Role” in 1999 for Girl, Interrupted. She was also nominated for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role” for Changeling (2008), and directed the Oscar-nominated drama Unbroken (2014).
