FRIENDSHIP'S DEATH

Directed by : Peter WOLLEN

Year of production : 1987 Country : UNITED KINGDOM Length : 75 minutes

Synopsis

"Friendship's Death" is the bizarre and absorbing story of the relationship between a British war correspondent (Bill Paterson) and a female extra-terrestrial, named Friendship (Tilda Swinton) who, on a peace mission to Earth, misses her intended destination of MIT, and instead lands inadvertently in Jordan during the events of Black September in 1970. The film's intelligent wit, coupled with outstanding performances from its two leads makes this a truly compelling film. This is the only solo feature directed by renowned film theorist Peter Wollen who died in 2019.
