Angelina Jolie brought her six children with her to Cambodia where they attended the premiere of her "passion project," "First They Killed My Father." The newly divorced actress and her brood posed for photos and addressed the press at the premiere in the South Asian country. Everyone was dressed to the nine's and wore big smiles as they talk about the movie.

Cambodia is a special place for the Jolie-Pitts

The family has been visiting the country frequently over the years and recently worked together on Jolie's latest film. Reports indicate that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's two oldest sons, Maddox and Pax, worked on the production side of this movie, which was directed by their mother.

This, of course, was very special for Maddox as he was born in the country.

A family affair

While this film was very personal for both Jolie and Maddox, the whole family was involved. While working on the movie, Jolie brought her other children along, and many of them made friends and got to know and appreciate the culture.

Jolie traveled to Cambodia with Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, all of whom were living in the country during the filming of the movie. The kids have learned so much about the way of life and seem to have a great respect for the people living in Maddox's home country.

At one point during their most recent trip, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt surprised the crowd as she approached the microphone at a press event for the premiere and said, "My name is Shiloh, and I love Cambodia," in the native language of Khmer.

'First They Killed My Father'

The film is told from a child's perspective making it unique. It tells the story of the Khmer Rouge communist party in the 1970s. The Khmer Rouge genocide killed nearly 2 million people. This film is said to be very near and dear to Angelina Jolie's heart as it details her experience with the genocide. Not only is it her story but it's also her son Maddox's story. The film will debut on Netflix later this year.
