Holocaust Museum Houston film screening: In the Land of Blood and Honey
In the Land of Blood and Honey, written and directed by Angelina Jolie, is a tragic love story set against the backdrop of the Bosnian war. In a land where people of different cultures long lived in peace, there was a brief moment when a Muslim girl, Ajla, and a Bosnian police offer, Danijel, fell in love. Then, violence tore through the nation pitting neighbor against neighbor, and the age-old evils of religious hatred surfaced in the region.
Ajla is taken prisoner and saved from the horrors of war by her captor, Danijel. As circumstances place them on opposite ends of the conflict, their relationship is ravaged by questions of loyalty and betrayal.
Emily Sample, Holocaust Museum Houston's assistant director of education, will introduce the film.
Seating is limited, and advance registration is requested.
