Pulp Film Uk Premiere In Sheffield


Pulp, Sheffield's second greatest sons (after LFO, obvs) are set to open the 21st Annual Sheffield Doc/Fest with an offering entitled Pulp: A Film about Life, Death and Supermarkets. The Florian Habicht directed fly-on-the-wall documentary premiered to some acclaim in SXSW earlier this year. The film deals with the band's relationship with Sheffield, and their final , homecoming show of December 2012. It is set to be screened on June 7th.

"By turns funny, moving, life-affirming and (occasionally) bewildering, PULP is a music-film like no other," reads the press guff. "Florian Habicht unveils the deep affection that the inhabitants of Sheffield have for Pulp, and the formative effect the town has had on the band’s music (and front-man Jarvis Cocker’s lyrics in particular)."

A Q&A with Jarvis Cocker, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle, Steve Mackey, Mark Webber, and director Habicht will follow, with both the film and subsequent Q&A being simultaneously broadcast to cinemas across the UK, including the BFI Southbank, Cineworld and Curzon, among others. More information can be found on the slightly confusing Doc/Fest website here, with further film announcements expected on May 8th.
