Premiered last month at Hot Docs, Florian Habicht’s Spookers will head to the familiar (to Habicht) territory of Sheffield next month to play the UK’s premiere doco festival.
Habicht’s Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets was largely shot in the city and opened the 2014 festival.
Spookers plays in the festival’s Illuminate competition line-up, which awards “vibrant and innovative filmmaking inspired by scientific understanding”. Spookers is an interesting choice or the line-up, with the five other titles selected addressing suicide, abortion, pandemic diseases and quantum physics.
Sheffield Doc|Fest runs 9 – 14 June.
