Pulp’s Candida Doyle talks about The Beat Is The Law

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Interviewed at the Leeds International Film Festival screening of The Beat Is The Law, Candida Doyle talks about the film, Pulp, Margaret Thatcher’s 80′s and the future of music.

After the screening she did a great Q and A with the film’s director, Eve Wood. As Candida said herself, she doesn’t get much opportunity to talk, its usually the men.

The screening was a great event in such a grand setting of the Leeds Town Hall. To see the film projected onto such a massive screen and hear the sound coming back at you on such a scale was amazing. A truly memorable night for us as filmmakers. Big thanks to the festival and of course Candida.

Here’s a ‘pocket’ review of the screening by the Leeds Student magazine

The Beat is The Law on Fox News in America!

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Here’s a clip of Fox 9 News in Minneapolis covering the Sound Unseen Music and Film Festival. Half way through the reporter discusses The Beat Is The Law with the festival organiser.
Its interesting because despite the film being about Pulp, she really likes the socio-political aspect of the film and ends with a shot of a guy collecting money for the miners to keep them off the dole. Its a bit surreal to see Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News showing derelict steel factories, police and protesters protesting about the oppressive regime of The Iron Lady herself, Margaret Thatcher, being beamed to homes across what is a large population in Minneapolis at breakfast time!
The film is screening tonight at 9pm, Trylon Cinema, Sound Unseen
