For her next film project, Angelina Jolie is returning to the director's chair and teaming up with Netflix.
Check out a behind-the-scenes, first-look preview for the upcoming Angelina Jolie-directed Netflix film, "First They Killed My Father," which tells the remarkable life story of Cambodian human-rights activist Loung Ung.
Based on her non-fiction book of the same name, the film chronicles Loung Ung's early childhood in Cambodia as a five-year-old girl who witnessed firsthand the brutal and murderous tactics of the genocidal Pol Pot regime, circa 1975.
Filmed in Cambodia and featuring an entire cast of Cambodian actors, "First They Killed My Father" will be released on Netflix later in the year.
Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung recounts the horrors she suffered under the rule of the deadly Khmer Rouge.
