Angelina Jolie directs A Place in Time

AngelinaJolie.jpgAngelina Jolie's first directorial outing is A Place in Time, a documentary that takes three minutes in time across the globe and edits them together to tell a wonderful story of the world we live in.

Jolie had the assistance of many of her acting friends to travel the world and take a camera with them, and at the same precise moment turn them on and film a story. These names were people such as Sean Astin (Agentina), Colin Farrell (Italy), Ryan Gosline (Chad), Anne Hathaway (Cambodia) , Djimon Hounsou (Los Angeles), Jude Law (New Orleans), and Hillary Swank (New York).

I haven't heard much about the story until I caught a review over at S. Neil Vineberg' blog, and through the fawning arty speak we get to hear what it's really about:

Each person flew to a unique location in the world with a hand-held mini-DV camera. The crews filmed what they saw around them, as they prepared for the big moment - when everyone would turn on their cameras for three minutes. On January 11, 2005 at 12 noon Greenwich Mean Time, those cameras rolled in 27 locations - including USA (Wisconsin, NY, Nevada, Louisiana, South Dakota and California), Chad, Niger, Kosovo, Italy, Chad, China, Jordan, Lebanon, Mexico, Iceland, Antarctica and elsewhere.

I'm still not entirely sure what A Place in Time is about, but with her work outside Hollywood it's fair to say that this film is going to make a point about children, the world we live in, and just how small it really is.



Wow. This sounds really interesting! I'll have to keep my eye out for it later int he year.

how will this be different from `A Moment on Earth` ?
