London: Angelina Jolie has been honoured for raising awareness of human rights issues with her directorial debut `In The Land Of Blood And Honey`.
The 36-year-old actress stepped behind the camera for the movie about a forbidden romance between a Bosnian woman and a Serbian soldier during the Bosnian War.
Jolie was the guest of honour at the Cinema For Peace Gala in Berlin, Germany and she was handed the special film accolade as partner Brad Pitt looked on, reported Contactmusic.
The movie was premiered in Sarajevo, Bosnia on Tuesday, and before the screening Jolie said she felt apprehensive.
"I`m nervous and I`m excited. I`ll probably cry through the entire thing. I`ll be very, very moved because, of course, a lot of the people coming are the victims of war so it`s going to be heavy," said Jolie.
