FRIENDSHIP'S DEATH

Peter Wollen
GBR 1987
78min
V'09

Peter Wollen's only solo feature, Friendship's Death, is the bizarre and absorbing story of the relationship between a British war correspondent and a female extraterrestrial robot on a peace mission to Earth, who, missing her intended destination of M.I.T., lands inadvertently in Amman, Jordan during the events of \"Black September\" 1970. The film's intelligent wit, coupled with outstanding performances from Tilda Swinton and Bill Paterson, makes this Wollen's most compelling film.
