No Manifesto: A Film About Manic Street Preachers

Following its sell-out premiere in Cardiff, new small-budget indie rock doc No Manifesto: A Film About Manic Street Preachers is coming to Sheffield Students Union for one night only on February 11.


A real labour of love, it took Manic Street Preachers fan Elizabeth Marcus more than 10 years to put the film together. Encouraged by her partner, the American producer Kurt Engferh (Bowling For Columbine), she travelled across the world with a hand-held camera, collecting testimony from close on 100 fellow disciples of the band to create a fanzine on film. It was only later that she was invited into Nicky, James Dean and Sean's inner sanctum and spent two years recording interviews with them in the studio, at home and on tour. The end result, as she describes it, is a 'multi-media mash-up of a movie' and quite unlike a conventional rock doc. 


This screening is run in partnership with Sheffield University Film Unit. For tickets, priced from £4, go to
