Abstract or Description:

To celebrate the remastering of Friendship’s Death, on 17 October 2020, Professor Laura Mulvey and Dr. Kodwo Eshun joined BFI archivist Wendy Russell for an appreciation of the work of Peter Wollen.

Mulvey and Eshun consider Friendship’s Death, exploring multiple themes within the film, its political contexts and biographical circumstances. The discussion broadened to consider Wollen’s eclectic body of writing and the unique critical perspective he brought to bear in a wide variety of fields, from his politically committed work to his screenwriting.
