Angelina Jolie Is ‘Ignorant’ Says Bosnian Rape Victims
Angelina Jolie is set to make her directorial debut with a film based on a love story set during the Bosnian War but the concept has raised doubts in some people’s mind.
A group of women on Monday who were the victims of sexual violence during the tragic war called Jolie ‘ignorant’.
“Angelina Jolie’s ignorant attitude towards victims says enough about the scenario and gives us the right to continue having doubts about it,” the Women Victims of War (WVW) association wrote a letter to the United Nations refugee agency.
In their letter to UNHCR, the women victims said that its members are ‘deeply concerned about the movie.’
According to media reports, Jolie had cut down the Bosnia shooting schedule from 10 days to three and decided to film the remaining scenes in Hungry.
It is said that Jolie showed keen interest to meet the group to clear the doubts however the meeting never took place.
"We have insisted to meet Angelina Jolie since we don't want to be wrongly presented in the world ... Our voices are worthwhile and we should have got much more respect," the WVW letter further read.
"Angelina made a big mistake. We feel that she did not act like a real UNHCR ambassador and we believe that she has no more credibility to remain the ambassador," the letter concluded.
