Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets

Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets, starring Jarvis Cocker, Mark Webber, Candida Doyle, Nick Banks, Steve Mackey and the people of Sheffield, is one of the year's best music films, hands down.

At the time britpop became something popular and much considerable in the nineties, Pulp had already been around for fifteen years, making excellent records on Fire, which the masses didn’t seem to care about that much. When they achieved commercial success in 1994, they were an experienced band still growing, and Jarvis in particular was an outstanding writer. In those times when the NME trends shaped the music world, and the interest of the worldwide media for everything British indie rock-related became senselessly massive, Pulp finally got what they deserved, and hit stardom status.

Their story is more or less well known today, 13 years after the release of their final record, but now it is caught on film too. Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets is a documentary/concert movie directed by Florian Habicht, that follows the band as they get ready for their anniversary live show in their hometown of Sheffield. It premiered at SXSW to an excellent response.
The film will have its European premiere screening at the Sheffield Doc Fest 2014 on June 7th, followed by many more in cinemas worldwide.
