Angelina Jolie Behind the Camera — Kurt Andersen talks with Angelina Jolie about the challenges of making In the Land of Blood and Honey, her directorial debut, in Serbo-Croatian. We tell the story of lost audio recordings that predate Thomas Edison’s phonograph. And we announce the winner of our 420-character story contest.
Women Directors, Dirty Projectors — Are we entering a golden age for women directors in Hollywood?
