Interview with Greta Gurwig, star of DAMSELS IN DISTRESS.
I asked Angelina Jolie a series of questions along with other members of the press about what her experiences were like on directing IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY. She was very open and enthusiastic about discussing her first directorial/writing debut. We also got to speak with her on the red carpet. There she was very excited and almost giddy when we complimented her on the film. One of the actors on the film said "to know Angelina Jolie is to be her friend." Listen to all the clips and get to know Angelina in a different way. She worked with the best of the best talent in Bosnia. She made it clear that this was a collaborative effort. Take a listen to all of the audio clips, they're all interesting.
