Pulp documentary screening details

Since the group's 2012 reunion tour was one of the highlights of my year, I can't wait to see this. Read on for screenings...

Oscilloscope Laboratories presents Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets, Florian Habicht's documentary about the Britpop band as they prepare to say farewell with a hometown show in their native Sheffield after 25 years together. The film had its world premiere at this year's SXSW Film Festival.

The film will open theatrically in select markets on Nov. 19 with a premiere event in Los Angeles on Aug. 5 at the Ace Hotel as a special presentation for Don't Knock The Rock Film and Music Festival. The night includes a rare Q&A with enigmatic Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker and Florian Habicht. (This event is sold out)

New Yorkers can see the film a day later, Aug. 6, as it screens as the closing night film for the Film Society of Lincoln Center's second annual music documentary series Sound + Vision, with director Habicht in attendance.

The film will then play on Aug. 7 at Rooftop Films, Brooklyn (on the roof of Industry City in Sunset Park), with Jarvis Cocker acting as judge for a post-screening Pulp karaoke contest.
