The Big Melt
  • Description

    A special commission as part of the 100 Years of Stainless Steel celebrations, The Big Melt is a feature length elegy to the men and women who toiled in Sheffield's steelworks and a hymn to Britain's proud industrial past. Working with Sheffield's own musical hero Jarvis Cocker, acclaimed director Martin Wallace has woven an exquisite tapestry of steel industry-related archival footage drawn from the BFI National Archive. Jarvis also provides the film's stirring musical accompaniment, collaborating with a raft of Sheffield's finest musicians, including a string quartet, a brass band, members of PULP, Richard Hawley, The Forgemasters and a youth choir.

    Performed live at Sheffield's celebrated Crucible Theatre at Doc/Fest 2013. The DVD includes the full archive-based film, plus a recording of the live event.

    Special Features:

    • Feature length archive-based film
    • Recording of the live performance from Sheffield International Doc Fest 2014
    • Interviews with Martin Wallace and Jarvis Cocker
    • Fully illustrated booklet with essays by Jarvis Cocker, Martin Wallace and BFI curators

    Cast and Crew: Directed by Martin Wallace and Jarvis Cocker. Music by Jarvis Cocker.

    Awards and Reviews:
