"Maddox (her son) is happy to be back in his country," she added.
"First They Killed My Father" is based on the autobiography of the same name by Cambodian human-rights activist Loung Ung, a friend of Jolie's. The memoir tells the true story of the devastation inflicted on Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge communist party in the 1970s.Image: Reuters Pictures
"I read Loung's book many years ago. It helped to open my eyes to what was going on the world," said Jolie.
"First They Killed My Father" will be released globally via Netflix later this year.
