First They Killed My Father (2017, D: Jolie) -- Netflix





Angelina Jolie’s latest directorial effort has an official trailer.

The Netflix film “First They Killed My Father,” which is slated to screen at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, is a thrilled that chronicles the journey of a childhood survivor of the Pol Pot regime during the Khmer Rouge years in Cambodia.

“Her eyes,” title pages flash across the screen in the trailer, “never forget.” Meanwhile, shots of children chanting and loading ammunition set the stage for a harrowing tale. One of the final shots in the trailer shows the main actress, Srey Moch, watching buildings engulfed in flames.The story is based on the memoir of the same name by Loung Ung, who shares a writing credit on the film with Jolie.

If Netflix and Cambodia push it correctly, this should be an easy win for the Best Foreign Language Oscar.
