In December 2012, Pulp performed in their hometown of Sheffield, England for the first time in over a decade. Apart from an appearance aboard the S.S. Coachella, the sold-out show at the 12,000-capacity Sheffield Arena would mark the band’s final performance ever (or, at least, for the foreseeable future). Fortunately, a film crew was there to capture the homecoming and has turned it into a new documentary dubbed, Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets.
Directed by New Zealand filmmaker Florian Habicht, the documentary features footage from the concert concert and interviews with the band’s various members, along with insightful and occasionally hilarious cameos from the people of Sheffield. The film promises to see, “the band share their thoughts on fame, love, mortality – & car maintenance.”
After premiering at this year’s SXSW and Cannes Film Festival, the film will receive its theatrical debut in UK Cinemas on June 8th (click here for a list of upcoming screenings). In anticipation, a new trailer has been released, which you can watch below.
