The Forge of Friendship

The definitive documentary of two literary giants and their incredible bond

True friendship has the power to forge great vision. It can shape creativity and imagination, surpass mere collaboration and transcend the individuals themselves. It can, in fact, change the world.

This captivating topic is the basis for The Forge of Friendship, a five-part documentary series that explores the bonds of friendship between two of the world’s most famous authors, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Learn how the forces that shook the first half of the 20th Century shaped their lives and legacies. Experience the profound impact of war, as each man took up arms and then watched the next generation do the same. Marvel at how their friendship began and then evolved as it was tested by personal and professional challenges.

Through interviews with experts, academics, admirers and even those who knew them personally, we will uncover the beliefs and the shared love of language and story that led to the creation of some of the most beloved tales of our time, The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia.

Ultimately, this documentary will show how the power of friendship can inspire and motivate individuals to create works of art that endure and inspire for generations to come.
