Sheffield, 1988, ‘The Day That Never Happened’. Following a disastrous farewell show in their hometown, PULP move to London in search of success. They find fame on the world stage in the 1990’s with anthems including ‘Common People’ and ‘Disco 2000’. 25 years (and 10 million album sales) later, they return to Sheffield for their last UK concert: what could go wrong? Giving a career best performance exclusive to the film, the band share their thoughts on fame, love, mortality - & car maintenance. Director Florian HABICHT (Love Story) weaves together the band’s personal offerings with dream-like specially-staged tableaux featuring ordinary people recruited on the streets of Sheffield. Unveiling the deep affection that the inhabitants of Sheffield have for Pulp, and the formative effect the town has had on the band’s music (& front-man Jarvis COCKER’s lyrics in particular) Pulp is a music-film like no other – by turns funny, moving, life affirming & (occasionally) bewildering.
Florian HABICHT studied filmmaking at the Elam School of Fine Arts Auckland and at the Binger Filmlab Amsterdam. His debut feature Woodenhead (2003) a Grimm inspired musical fairytale, became a cult hit in New Zealand and was distributed in the U.S.A. by Olive Films.
