Jarvis Cocker shares handwritten note about live ‘Pulp’ movie screenings

The film will have its European premiere on June 7 in Sheffield

Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has shared a handwritten note with fans about screenings of the Pulp film.

The documentary, which charts Pulp‘s homecoming show in Sheffield in December 2012, will receive its European premiere in Sheffield on June 7 at the City Hall as part of Sheffield Doc Fest 2014. In the note, Cocker has directed fans to a list of cinemas which will also be broadcasting the film live.

“As well as getting to see Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets at the same time as the people at the premiere, you’ll also be able to join in the Q&A session with the band, hosted by Mark Radcliffe after the screening. Really! We have the technology (& the popcorn),” writes Cocker in the letter, posted to the band’s Facebook page.

The movie received its world premiere in at SXSW 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.
