Details

Friendship's Death is the bizarre and absorbing story of the relationship between a British war correspondent (Bill Paterson, Comfort and Joy) and a female extra-terrestrial, named Friendship (Tilda Swinton, We Need to Talk About Kevin) 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.

Directed by renowned film theorist Peter Wollen (and his only solo feature), Friendship’s Death has been newly restored by the BFI National Archive and is available on Blu-ray and DVD for the first time.

Please note that due to unforseen circumstances, the release of this title has been delayed until 7 December 2020. All pre-orders will be shipped then.
