Angelina Jolie wants people to visit Cambodia
Actor-filmmaker Angelina Jolie hopes that her new film, First They Killed My Father, will encourage people to go to Cambodia
Actor-filmmaker Angelina Jolie hopes that her new film, First They Killed My Father, will encourage people to go to Cambodia. The 42-year-old has directed the film based on author Lung Ung's account of the Khmer Rouge 1975-79 regime in Cambodia. It depicts a difficult period in history, but she wants viewers to see past that and embrace the "beautiful" land and its people.
"I love the country so much and I hope that when people see the film, they don't just see the war and the suffering, but get to know this Cambodian family," Jolie says, adding, "My wish is that they see the beautiful culture, language and talented artistes. I hope people will bring work and travel to Cambodia," she added.
