Angelina Jolie Banned in Bosnia
Joan Collins may love her some Angelina Jolie, but Bosnia-Herzegovina certainly doesn’t.
The country revoked Jolie’s right to shoot in their country, after word of her directorial debut’s subject matter came to light. Angie is currently shooting a love story focused around the Bosnian War, in Budapest, but had planned to move shooting to Bosnia next month.
While she describes the film as a love story about a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman during the country’s devastating war in the 1990s, Bosnian women’s organizations are protesting the film for being “misleading.”
According to Bakira Hasecic, the president of the Women Victims of War Association Angelina’s film is more about rape, “In the film, a victim is really falling in love with her torturer.”
No word yet on what will happen to the production now that their shooting permits have been revoked. Perhaps Jolie can adopt some Bosnian children in an effort to make amends.
