Extra: Pitchfork TV presents Mac DeMarco’s short documentary film Pepperoni Playboy
The Story of Common People (56 minutes)
After the dust settled on the 90s Britpop phenomenon, one song stood head and shoulders above all others penned at the time... That song was “Common People” written by Sheffield anti-popstar Jarvis Cocker.
The Story of Common People takes a forensic look at the seminal track and attempts to shed light on its inspiration, its lyrics, and the man who wrote them.
Pepperoni Playboy (34 minutes)
Mac DeMarco released Salad Days early this year, and in the last year or so has gained a large following. Pepperoni Playboy is a short documentary on the musician and gives you a look into his recording space, the process of making his new record, and lots of self-shot footage of him and his band goofing around. Most of all it lets you spend 30 minutes or so soaking in DeMarco’s funny personality and all around charisma.
Both films in English with exclusive Chinese subtitles. Free entry.

About Wooozy Community Films
Wooozy Community Films are curated and organized by Wooozy.cn, with the first screenings happening in Beijing and Shanghai November 2011. The impetus for these events comes from Wooozy.cn staff’s knowledge of many groundbreaking music documentaries that are difficult for music fans in Mainland China to access. Wooozy Community Films fill that gap by searching out quality music documentaries and meticulously subtitling all films screened in Chinese.
Every few months, Wooozy holds screenings in cities across China. However, it’s not just a film screening, as there are also post-film moderated discussions, appearances by special industry guests, and more. Wooozy aims for Community Film screenings to foster a sense of community and camaraderie between music fans in each city.
