테스트

Hollywood movie producers are honoring Angelina Jolie’s Bosnia war film “In the Land of Blood and Honey” with a special award for its portrayal of social issues.

The Producers Guild of America said on Tuesday that the movie, Jolie’s directing debut which she also wrote and co-produced, would be given the 2012 Stanley Kramer Award.

Established in 2002 in memory of the Hollywood director, the award is given annually to a movie producer whose work “illuminates provocative social issues in an accessible and elevating fashion.”

“ ‘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 in a statement.

The movie tells a tale of love between a Serb man and a Muslim woman before the 1992-95 Bosnian war who later meet in different circumstances when he is an army officer and she is his detainee.

Jolie and her co-producers said in a statement they were honored by the PGA award.
