Los Angeles: Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is donating a portion of the proceeds from the soundtrack of her latest film 'In the Land of Blood and Honey' to charity.

The 36-year-old actress has stepped behind the camera to make her directorial debut with the movie, about a romance between a Serbian soldier and a Bosnian woman.

Jolie, who is a keen philanthropist, has vowed to hand over some of the profits from the soundtrack to the Sos Children's Villages program in Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to reports.
