The 21st edition of Sheffield Doc/Fest, considered UK’s premier documentary and digital media festival, will officially open with the European Premiere of PULP. A Film about Life, Death and Supermarkets, attended by the director Florian Habicht, producer Alex Boden of Pistachio Pictures Production and band-members: Jarvis Cocker, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle, Steve Mackey and Mark Webber. By turns funny, moving, life-affirming and (occasionally) bewildering, PULP is a music-film like no other. 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).
Says Hussain Currimbhoy, Director of Programming, “I can’t think of a better film to open this year’s fest with than Florian’s PULP. And to have the whole band together to talk about the film after the screening is going to be awesome”.
Sheffield Doc/Fest takes place across Sheffield and the Peak District in UK from Saturday 7 to Thursday 12 June. The full festival program will be launched on 8 May.
PULP will be released in the UK by Soda Pictures on 6th June.
