UH West O‘ahu premieres Angelina Jolie's In the Land of Blood and Honey

March 22, 9:00am - 11:30am
Consolidated Kapolei Theatres, 890 Kamokila Blvd.

UH West O'ahu will host a free screening of Angelina Jolie's Golden Globe nominated war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey. The Best Foreign Language Film nominee was not initially released in Hawai'i and comes to the islands before its DVD release thanks to the efforts of Joshua Cooper, UH West O'ahu political science lecturer.

The event is free and open to the public and will be preceded by a taped introduction from Director Angelina Jolie. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. There are 250 seats in the theater. UH West O‘ahu Admission representatives will be on hand to answer questions about the University and the new Kapolei campus opening this August.

In the Land of Blood and Honey tells the story of Danijel (Goran Kostic) and Ajla (Zana Marjanovic) two Bosnians from different sides of a brutal ethnic conflict. Danijel, a Bosnian Serb police officer, and Ajla, a Bosnian Muslim artist, are together before the war, but their relationship changes as violence engulfs the country. Months later, Danijel is serving under his father, General Nebojsa Vukojevich (Rade Serbedzija), as an officer in the Bosnian Serb Army. He and Ajla come face to face again when she is taken from the apartment she shares with her sister, Lejla (Vanesa Glodjo), and Lejla’s infant child by troops under Danijel’s command. As the conflict takes hold of their lives, their relationships changes, their motives and connection to one another becomes ambiguous and their allegiances grown uncertain.

In the Land of Blood and Honey portrays the incredible emotional, moral and physical toll that war takes on individuals as well as the consequences that stem from the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken with conflict.
