After stops in Germany, Paris and Bosnia last week, Angelina Jolie headed to Zagreb, Croatia yesterday evening to premiere her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey.

When Angelina attended the film's Bosnian premiere, she received a standing ovation from the crowd of 5,000 people, and she became a bit teary when she spoke. "I feel very strongly about the film and I believe that its core issue - which is the need for intervention and need for the world to pay attention to atrocities when they are happening - is very, very timely, especially with things that are happening in Syria today," she told the audience. "It is very important that this film is out at this time. If this film points the finger at anybody it is the international community, so I hope it remains a wake-up call for them."

The Croatian premiere only had about 500 VIP guests in attendance, but Jolie still took the time to chat with reporters and hundreds of fans camped outside the red carpet.



She's definitely 100% into her own project ... unlike other celebs who have tried their hand at directing this year. Yes Madonna, we're talking to you!
