Following the 2014 prison-of-war drama "Unbroken," Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie has returned to the director's chair to helm yet another harrowing true story -- this time, chronicling the horrific years of the Pol Pot regime that ruled the country of Cambodia in the mid-1970s.

Teaming up with Netflix for the first time, Jolie also produces and co-writes the forthcoming drama "First They Killed My Father," which tells the remarkable life story of Cambodian human-rights activist Loung Ung, who, at the age of five, witnessed firsthand the genocidal atrocities done by Cambodian dictator Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge army.

Adapted from Ung's best-selling memoir of the same name, the Netflix movie was shot in Cambodia and features an entire cast of Cambodian actors, including newcomer Sareum Srey Moch who stars as the young Loung Ung.

"First They Killed My Father" is set to premiere Friday, September 15th on Netflix.
