NOW SHOWING Above, Orangutan stars of the movie Born to be Wild 3D; below, staff play soccer with the orphaned elephants in the film Actors runwild at jungle screening JAKARTA: An orangutan that stars in the IMAX film Born to Be Wild has been treated to a special jungle screening in Indonesia. And she was captivated until the trumpet of elephants scared her off. The 40-minute Warner Bros and IMAX documentary, narrated by Academy Awardwinning actor Morgan Freeman, follows two women who have devoted their lives to caring for orphaned animals, Birute Galdikas in Indonesia and Daphne Sheldrick in Kenya. This weeks screening for the orangutans on Borneo island was going to be held outside, but rain forced everyone into a hut. Producer Drew Fellman said yesterday Siswi, the daughter of one of the first orangutans Galdikas cared for, sat in the doorway and was engaged for the first 15 min utes of the film. But Fellman said once the elephants arrived and started getting boisterous, Siswi got uncomfortable and ran off and climbed into a tree. Fellman said ahead of the jungle screening for the orangutans the event was a sort of thank you for their co-starring roles. They worked pretty hard on it, he told Britains Daily Telegraph. They came to be like members of the crew. Indonesia, home to 90 per cent of the orangutans left in the wild, has lost half of its rain forests in the past 50 years in its rush to supply the world with timber, pulp, paper and palm oil.

In a post, he writes, Looking forward to bringing some awareness to whats happening in the Congo today, and sharing stories of the extraordinary people Ive met along the way. Serbs boycott Jolie film SHE SAID IT ANGELINA JOLIE Actress-director I am absolutely not anti-Serbian BELGRADE: Only 12 people turned out yesterday for the Serbian premiere of Angelina Jolies directorial debut and some moviegoers walked out before the movies end. Contrary to widespread rumours, In the Land of Blood and Honey was not banned in Serbia. But the reception it got was a far cry from the 5000 people who cheered Jolie at a gala in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, last week. The love story, set in the Bosnian war, was shot in 2010 with actors from the former Yugoslavia. It tells the story of a Muslim woman and a Serbian man who have a fling before the war and meet again when she has been taken prisoner by a Bosnian Serb army unit com manded by her former lover. But Serbs have reacted angrily, arguing the film portrays them only as villains. Out of 12 viewers in Belgrade yesterday, several people walked out before the end of the screening, the Serbian news website Mondo reports. Belgrade Film Academy member Mirko Beokovic told a local paper Jolies film was biased because it shows (Bosnian) Muslims as civilised people and Serbs as savage peasants. But Jolie denied she was biased against Serbs. I am absolutely not antiSerbian, Jolie said, answering a question during a news conference in Sarajevo, with partner Brad Pitt to present the movie. J.K. Rowling Rowlingwrites for adults LONDON: Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is back and she is writing for adults. Were going to publish J.K. Rowlings first novel for adults! Were so excited! US publishing house Little, Brown and Company said on Twitter. It is not yet known what the book will be about or what it will be called. Further details will be released later this year. Although Ive enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series, Rowling said. The freedom to ex plore new territory is a gift that Harrys success has brought me. Little, Brown and Company will publish the book in the US, while Little, Brown Book Group will publish it in the UK.
