Ms Angelina Jolie will be in Japan on Monday 29th July for a special screening of her film In the Land of Blood and Honey, where she will also give a speech on her involvement in the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict initiative - a campaign launched by Ms Jolie and the British Foreign Secretary William Hague to eradicate warzone rape worldwide.
Directed by Angelina Jolie and set in Bosnia-Herzegovina, In the Land of Blood and Honey gives a compelling insight into the devastating way in which sexual violence is used as a weapon of war. It touches on issues universal to conflict, including the consequences of non-intervention, the plight of women, the need for accountability and the challenges of reconciliation.
