Tagline: Wir waren Freunde. Waren wir das? (We were friends. Were we?)

Plot: Drawn from evidence that the 9/11 attacks were planned in student apartments in Hamburg, Elmar Fischer wrote and directed 'The Friend' as his feature film debut. "Easily the best 9/11 movie to date... too assured and subtly resonant to ignore," said Mike D'Angelo of Time Out New York. Story about two college students addresses the cultural divisions facing us in the 21st Century and the spread of terrorism that can foment and stem from these divisions.

Yunes, the Yemeni roommate of German student Chris, leaves without warning or forwarding address. A few days later, the 9/11 attacks occur. Chris and his companions begin to wonder: was Yunes a terrorist? The film shifts between Chris' investigation and flashbacks tracing Yunes' friendship with Chris, his romance with a German girl, his life as a Yemeni immigrant in Germany, and his flirtations with Islamic extremism. Using a non-linear narrative, 'The Friend' becomes an absorbing and timely reflection on the tangled relationships between the political and the personal."
