LIVE SATELLITE Q&AOn Saturday, June 7th, the 17.30 screening will be followed by a live satellite interview with Pulp. Book now.
Formed by Jarvis Cocker in Sheffield in 1978, Pulp spent years in the pop wilderness before finding the success that Cocker craved during the Britpop years with era-defining hits such as Common People and Sorted for Es & Wizz. Discovering that fame wasn’t all it had promised to be, the band gradually retreated from the limelight before entering a hiatus in 2002. They returned to performing live in 2011, and Florian Habicht’s film catches them at their last U.K. gig, at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena in 2012.
Between stirring renditions of their greatest songs, Cocker and the band give candid observations on love, sex, death and fame. It’s also revealed how much the city of Sheffield shaped Pulp, and contributions from fans around the city illustrate the lingering devotion for the band. (Notes by Michael Hayden.)
