When Angelina Jolie made her feature directing debut, the Bosnia war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey, she shot each scene in both the official language of Bosnia (known as BHS), and in English. When the film was released in the U.S., the film’s distributor, FilmDistrict, made the somewhat surprising decision to screen only the BHS version with English subtitles, a call Jolie praised. For the film’s home video release, however, audiences will have a chance to experience both versions of the film.
On Feb. 24, the authentic language and English language versions will be available on for VOD and digital download. A month later, on March 27, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is making the BHS version available on Blu-ray, along with a Q&A between Jolie and one of her film’s stars, actress Vanessa Glodjo. The DVD will feature the English-language version of the film. Both versions will also be available on a Blu-ray and DVD combo pack.
