British screenwriter and filmmaker Peter Wollen began working in films as the co-writer of Antonioni's The Passenger in 1975. From there he helped direct a few experimental features with the support of the British Film Institute, making his solo feature-film directorial debut in 1987 with Friendship's Death, a science fiction film about an alien girl who crashes in war-torn Jordan. Wollen first gained attention as a noted British film theorist and author of Signs and Meaning in the Cinema, one of the seminal works on structuralist theory.
