Education is key to fighting humanitarian crises: Angelina Jolie

Director Angelina Jolie arrives on the red carpet with her six children (L-R) Maddox Jolie-Pitt, Pax Jolie-Pitt, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, Knox Leon Jolie-Pitt, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, and Zahara Jolie-Pitt for the film First They Killed My Father at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), in Toronto.

Despite her admittedly insular life with her children at her side, Jolie isn't blind to public perception or afraid to return to an industry that, in part, stood by her estranged husband.

The Oscar victor has largely kept her brood out of the public eye, buying a large estate in Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles for $25 million as a new home base for the family.

Speaking about how the movie came about, Jolie said she and Loung penned the script years ago and they finally decided to make the movie keeping in mind Maddox's role in the movie. "For example it's very important to me my daughter Zahara doesn't start learning about her history through the civil rights movement in America, that's not how she begins to learn about herself as a young African-American", she said.

Her Netflix production is an adaptation of Cambodian-born author and activist Ung's memoir from 2000. She worked alongside her eldest sons, Maddox and Pax, on the film. "I can't tell if they're excited or they're more like, 'Mum, ehh.' I think they were laughing at us before", she told ET.

When I looked over and I saw (Maddox) and Pax working with the other crew.

Aside from the screening, Angelina also spoke at The Women In The World Canada Summit, where the lineup included Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. "And that's O.K., because I know who I am, and the kids know who I am". It was the thing to be, ' the Oscar victor began.
