Washington: At the world premiere of her passion project ' First They Killed My Father' in Cambodia, Oscar winner Angelina Jolie referenced her deep connection to the place since it is where her first child, Maddox, is from.

 

"I cannot find words to express what it means to me that I was entrusted with telling part of the story of this country," Jolie said.

 

"This film was not made to focus on the horrors of the past, but to celebrate the resilience, kindness and talent of the Cambodian people."

 

The 41-year-old actress has kept away from the public eye since she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September. The two are currently engaged in a custody battle over their six children, Source reported.  Oscar Winner said that the film is her way of thanking the nation.

 

"Without Cambodia I may never have become a mother. Part of my heart is and will always be in this country. And part of this country is always with me: Maddox."

"Thank you everyone for attending tonight. We finally made it. It's a great honor to present this film to all of you, and to stand by my mother and my family. And now I'd like to introduce my little sister Shiloh, as she has something to say."
