Angelina Jolie was honored recently for creating awareness about human rights issues through In the Land of Blood and Honey, her directorial debut. The film tells the heart-wrenching story of a romance between a Serbian soldier and a Bosnian woman against the backdrop of the Bosnian war.
Partner Brad Pitt looked on as Angelina was presented with the special film accolade at the 62nd Annual Berlin International Film Festival’s Cinema for Peace Gala 2012 at Konzerthaus Am Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin, Germany on February 13 where she was the guest of honor.
The actress has been rather conservative in her choice of red carpet clothing since she stepped behind the camera, but she looked highly sophisticated and incredibly beautiful as always.
She wore a plain yet very elegant full-length light grey creation in silk cashmere herringbone by Ralph & Russo that greatly emphasized her slender frame. The tailored pencil dress had a high neckline accentuated by pleats and three-quarter sleeves. It was cinched in at the waist with a thin light grey belt of the same fabric as the dress. She paired her outfit with nude peep-toe platforms, adding only silver dangle earrings for a little sparkle.
Brown hair left loose in her trademark style, the mother of six finished her demure look with smoky eyes, warm red lips and a dash of rouge.
In the Land of Blood and Honey is all set to premiere on Tuesday in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Angelina said she is very apprehensive about how it will be received there. She explained to reporters that while she was excited about the showing, she was also nervous and will probably cry a lot since most of the people coming for the movie are victims of the war and she expects the atmosphere to be heavy.
