Friendship’s Death was the only solo feature film made by the influential British film theorist Peter Wollen. Forceful in its politics and shimmering with prophecy, it remains bracingly relevant more than thirty years on. As we celebrate the return of this unique film to audiences, we are delighted that four key figures from the production are able to join us for two in-depth discussions. Lead actors Tilda Swinton (Friendship) and Bill Paterson (Sullivan) will join BFI curator Will Massa to reflect on their collaboration with Wollen as a director. Following this, the film’s producer, Rebecca O’Brien, and cinematographer, Witlold Stok, will join BFI curator Josephine Botting to tell the story of the film’s production.
