Women Film Critics Circle Honor Angelina Jolie’s Foreign Language Film ‘First They Killed My Father’

The Women Film Critics Circle (or WFCC) are the big wigs of the female critics association of women critics. A group of women writers, scholars, journalists, creators of various forms of media. Their curve ball is a magnificent support and representation of women in film. In front of and behind the camera.
