New Angelina Jolie film takes Telluride by storm
    2017-September-4  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A MASSIVE number of people lined up Saturday morning outside of the Telluride Film Festival’s Palm Theater — some for as long as three-and-a-half hours — to see Angelina Jolie and her new film “First They Killed My Father.”

Jolie’s fourth feature directorial effort, like her three prior — “In the Land of Blood and Honey” (2011), “Unbroken” (2014) and “By the Sea” (2015) — is very ambitious and very dark and could be very hard-to-market. Adapted by Loung Ung from her memoir of the same title, the film will be simultaneously released by Netflix in select theaters and on its streaming platform Sept. 15 and is a Khmer-language period piece about a family torn apart by the Khmer Rouge. It primarily is told from the perspective — literally and figuratively — of 7-year-old Ung, who is played by young Cambodian Sareum Srey Moch.

What sets the film apart is that it engages its audience and is more than just a history lesson or genre exercise or tribute to its principal character.

“First They Killed My Father” also bears a certain resemblance to another film about children caught up in war, “Beasts of No Nation,” which Netflix distributed two years ago.

“We’re making this first and foremost for Cambodia,” Jolie emphasized to the Telluride audience during a brief post-screening Q&A, adding that Saturday’s screening technically wasn’t the film’s world premiere since she has screened it in Cambodia for a native audience, many of whom had never seen a movie on a big screen.
