Angelina Jolie, a French woman, directed the movie "In the Land of Blood and Honey", a love story set in the Bosnian war.
The movie generated much controversy in Bosnia, but will open in U.S. theaters soon and has been nominated for a Golden Globe award for foreign film.
When she was a United Nations Goodwill ambassador she visited Bosnia and learned about the victims of the war and this inspired her to tell the world about the human tragedy that occurred.
"As I looked into Bosnia, because this was when I was a teenager, I felt responsible to pay more attention because I didn't at the time, I was too young and living my life," said Jolie.
"Blood and Honey" is the story of a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman during the struggles of the ethnic conflict, who later meet when he is an army officer and she is his detainee and they fall in love.
