The musical subgenre of Britpop would not be the same without the influence of one band; Pulp, whose ironic swagger and generation defining image is captured in this poignant documentary marking their 25 plus year career. This film mixes concert footage from a landmark reunion show in the band’s hometown of Sheffield with behind-the-scenes interviews with the band, bystanders and fans. A music-film like no other – at times moving, hilarious and bewildering (much like the band it portrays).
The screening on Saturday 7 June (17.40) will be followed by a live satellite Q&A with band-members Jarvis Cocker, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle, Steve Mackey and Mark Webber, hosted by Adam Buxton, from Sheffield Film Festival.
The screenings on Tuesday 17 – Thursday 19 June will be preceded by DepicT! ’14 Random Act Special Mention Winner: Sun (Paul Hill, 1m40s, UK 2013).
