Angelina Jolie Directing Netflix Film to Teach Son About His Heritage

Angelina is returning to the director's chair for 'First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers.'

T he film will be set in Cambodia, the country she adopted her son Maddox from when he was 7 months old.  Now aged 13, Angelina is keen to use the filming experience to show her son a part of his heritage and says he’ll be spending a lot of time of set getting involved in the film personally:

“Maddox will be on set every day after school and involved behind the scenes… As Maddox and I prepare the film we will be side by side learning about his country. He is turning 14 next week and this is a very important time for him to understand who he is. He is my son but he is also a son of Cambodia. This is the time for our family to understand all that that means to him and to us.”

Angelina, who also worked on adapting the book the film is based on into a screenplay, has said that she does not intend to focus on the war aspect and the project will be about the characters themselves:

“The intent of this project is not to revisit the horrors of the war but to bring to the screen characters that people around the world will identify with and empathise with, and help to teach people about this country that I love and respect, and the Cambodian culture and family life I so admire.”

The film is set for release in late 2016.
