PGA to honour Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut
In The Land Of Blood And Honey will receive the PGA’s 2012 Stanley Kramer Award at the annual awards ceremony on Jan 21.
The Stanley Kramer Award was established in 2002 to recognise a contribution that “illuminates provocative social issues in an accessible and elevating fashion.”
Previous film recipients include such films as An Inconvenient Truth, Hotel Rwanda and Antwone Fisher.
“In The Land Of Blood And Honey is an extraordinary film that portrays a complex love story set against the terrors of the Bosnian War, especially towards women,” Producers Guild presidents Hawk Koch and Mark Gordon said. “This film truly embraces the legacy of Stanley Kramer.”
“We are extremely honored that the Guild has chosen to recognise our film,” producers Tim Headington, Jolie, Graham King and Tim Moore said. “We are truly privileged to join the ranks of past recipients and to be associated with the great Stanley Kramer.”
FilmDistrict plans to release the film on Dec 23.
