Angelina Jolie defends auditiemethode new movie
The story that cruel was dealt with children during the auditions for her new movie, Angelina Jolie untrue and hurtful.
Vanity Fair wrote this week that the search for a principal for First They Killed My Father in Cambodia was carried out by poor children to give money, asking them where they wanted to use it again to get it and thereby to provoke some reaction.
“I’m upset that an exercise in improvisation, with a scene from the film, described as a real life scenario,” wrote Angelina Sunday in a response to the Huffington Post. “The suggestion that there is real money of a child was taken away from them during the audition is false and hurtful. I would also be shocked if that happened.”
The director stressed in her statement that parents, guardians, doctors, and local charities were present during the auditions and the recordings, and that the film is correctly made is to help children. “The goal of the film is to pay attention to the horrors children face in war, and to contribute to the fight to protect them.”
First They Killed My Father is based on the eponymous book, in which Loung Ung her time as a child, under the reign of the Khmer rouge of Pol Pot describes.
