The live Q & A with Jarvis in the United Kingdom will be led in person by the film’s New Zealand director Florian Habicht and will follow the film screening. 

Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets had its international premiere at SXSW and is currently touring the international film festival circuit. It premiered last month to a hometown sell-out crowd in Sheffield and the event was broadcast live to cinemas across the UK and Ireland.

Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets
Kiwi director Florian Habicht (Love Story) collaborates with Jarvis Cocker as UK pop rockers Pulp head in to their triumphant 2012 concert, giving a career best performance documented exclusively by the film. Weaving together the band’s personal offerings, Habicht also accosts down-to-earth Sheffielders with questions about fame, love, mortality and the meaning of Jarvis. Pulp: a Film about Life, Death & Supermarkets is a music film like no other – by turns funny, moving and life-affirming.
