Angelina Jolie working on Humanitarian again in During A U.n. Security Council Meeting On Friday. Global strong as seen on the Syrian refugee crisis.
Jolie talks about her experience with those who fled from Syria during her 10 visits to the region in recent times, and called to the VIP and aid officials to do more to help them.
She said “We cannot look at Syria and the evil that has arisen from the ashes of indecision and think this is not the lowest point in the world’s inability to protect and defend the innocent.”
She added, “I’ve visited people over and over in the last decade. I’ve been to some camps four times (and) people just haven’t moved. It makes me very angry.”
Angelina Jolie’s movie ‘Africa’ is in doubt over finance issues after Skydance Productions reportedly halved their financial resolve for the project.
Deadline report that the production company and director Angelina were associated with a dispute, with Skydance wanting a romance to be the centrepiece of the film, but Angelina wanted it to be one part.
Because of the dispute, Skydance dropped their financial offer, though sources towards the production company insisted they never meant to put in more than the 25 % commitment that Paramount Pictures also made to the project.
The film is a story about Richard Leakey and his fight against ivory hunters who threatened population of African elephants in the 1980s.

Angelina Jolie do an interview with Elle.com about her film, Unbroken and her life
I prefer directing to acting. There is huge freedom that comes from being behind the camera. It brings a lot of responsibilities as well, but is intensely rewarding. Particularly the chance to help draw out the best in young actors, like Jack O’Connell in Unbroken, who is a remarkable talent.
I tend not to look back and dwell on a project once it is finished. But I do remember how intense the atmosphere was on-set filming some of the tougher scenes [such as] when Louie is being brutalized. It was very moving how always, after those scenes, the actors involved would check [and make sure that] everyone was okay and look out for each other.
Louie’s life was so extraordinary that is was impossible to capture it all on film. So there were inevitably things we had to leave out when telling the story. But as director I had the final say and felt that we were able to do justice to it. I do look forward to audiences being able to see the scenes that were cut [that are] now on the DVD. When Phil discusses his marriage to Cecy on the raft, when Fitzgerald stands up to the Bird, and the full Cinderella play are among the scenes [about which] I am excited will now be seen.
Like many of the greatest human stories, it is about the capacity of regular men and women to rise above adversity. It reminds us never to give up, and that having the spirit to fight is what really matters. It is powerful because it speaks to the potential inside all of us.
I do believe in the old saying ‘What does not kill you makes you stronger.’ Our experiences, good and bad, make us who we are. By overcoming difficulties, we gain strength and maturity.
I like to work with artists from around the world. There are so many new inspiring filmmakers. I had the privilege recently to work with Ethiopian filmmaker Zeresenay Mehari and his wife on the filmDifret. They are that unique balance of very thoughtful conscious filmmakers who are also brilliant, original artists.
It is not really the nature of the news, but what we do with the information we have. We know more than ever before in history about conflict and injustice happening across the world, but the will to translate that knowledge into pressure and action at a global level somehow seems to be lacking. Time and again, after massacres and atrocities, the world says, ‘never again.’ But in Syria today, to take just one example, these things are happening with impunity in the full knowledge of the world. We need a greater focus on solutions—not just on information.
