Several people have expressed anger over details that were reported in the interview feature, specifically over how children were cast for Jolie’s new Netflix film, “First They Killed My Father,” while other details about the making of the film have human rights activists concerned.The magazine piece reports that Jolie and her casting director “looked at orphanages, circuses, and slum schools, specifically seeking children who had experienced hardship.”Casting directors are described as having “set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism” in order to find the movie’s young lead.While this method was meant to get raw emotion from the children, many people are finding this “game” mean-spirited.“Cambodia went all in — closing off Battambang for days, giving the filmmakers permits to land in remote zones, providing them with 500 officials from their actual army to play the Khmer Rouge army,” the the VF article states.Brad Adams, executive director of Human Rights Watch’s Asia Division, told NY Mag’s The Cut that using officials from the Cambodian army is alarming.“To ask for permission to make a film and thereby invest in the local economy is fine, and you’re going to have to have some meetings with some government officials,” Adams told the outlet.[...] working with the Cambodian army is a no-go zone, it’s a red flag, and it’s a terrible mistake.“This is an army that is basically an occupying force of a dictatorship, it’s used to put down environmental activists — the kind of thing that she stands for is in direct contrast to what this government is,” he continued.[...] Adams told The Cut, There’s moral hazard in having any relationship or dealings with the Cambodian government.The film is based on a memoir of the same name by Loung Ung, and chronicles the death of her parents and two siblings — along with two million other Cambodians — in the Khmer Rouge Cambodian genocide.
