A documentary charting Pulp's homecoming show in Sheffield in December 2012 will receive its European premiere in Sheffield on June 7, at the City Hall.

Pulp will open the 21st Sheffield Doc/Fest and will also be broadcast live to select, nationwide branches of the VUE, Odeon, Cineworld, Picturehouse and Curzon cinema chains. The screening will be attended by the band, director Florian Habicht and producer Alex Boden.

The movie received its world premiere in Austin, Texas in March. The 90 minute long movie uses live footage from the band's Motorpoint Arena gig, with songs such as 'FEELINGCALLEDLOVE', 'Common People' and 'This Is Hardcore' featured alongside interviews with members of the band, including drummer Nick Banks, who talks about the band sponsoring his daughter's football team, Sheffield FC U-14 Ladies, and keyboard played Candida Doyle, who discusses her struggle with arthritis, which she developed as a teenager. Richard Hawley also features in the film and Jarvis Cocker discusses his uncomfortableness with aging as well as his stage wardrobe and his work as a teenage fishmonger in the movie.

A large part of the film is made up of interviews with fans of the band, as well as local people from Sheffield. Interviews for the film were conducted in Sheffield city centre and also with fans waiting outside the Arena. The film features a number of set pieces with local singing and dancing groups, who perform the band's material, including a group of older singers, who sing the band's hit 'Help The Aged' in a cafe. "It seems like a fairytale place," said Florian, a native New Zealander, of Sheffield after a SXSW screening. "A nice fairytale? Not a scary one?" asked Jarvis in response, to laughs from the audience.
