PGA to fete Jolie’s ‘Blood and Honey’

Pic will receive the 2012 Stanley Kramer Award

The Producers Guild of America has tapped Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey” to receive the 2012 Stanley Kramer Award.

The kudo will be awarded at the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Jan. 21 at the Beverly Hilton.

The Kramer award was established in 2002 to honor films or individuals that illuminate “provocative social issues in an accessible and elevating fashion.” Kramer’s films include “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?,” “High Noon,” “The Caine Mutiny and “The Defiant Ones.”

Previous recipients of the Kramer award include “The Great Debaters,” “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Hotel Rwanda,” “In America” and “Antwone Fisher.” Sean Penn is the most recent recipient for his relief work in Haiti and the first individual to receive the award.

“‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ is an extraordinary film that portrays a complex love story set against the terrors of the Bosnian War, especially towards women,” said PGA presidents Hawk Koch and Mark Gordon. “This film truly embraces the legacy of Stanley Kramer.”

Producers are Tim Headington, Jolie, Graham King and Tim Moore. Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War that tore the Balkan region apart in the 1990s, the pic tells the story of a soldier fighting for the Serbs and a Bosnian held captive in the camp he oversees.

The film stars Zana Marjanovic, Goran Kostic, Rade Serbedzija, Vanesa Glodjo and Nikola Djuricko, and is executive produced by Holly Goline with associate producer Simon Crane.
