Spanish subtitled

A FULLER LIFE celebrates the independent spirit of a true American maverick whose unique output broke new ground in journalism, filmmaking, storytelling and even service to his country. The story takes us through highlights of Samuel Fuller’s unconventional and adventurous life spanning a century of American history, a great man’s great yarn, a love song to democracy, an hymn to independence, originality and endurance.
Adapted from Sam Fuller’s award-winning autobiography, “A Third Face,” the film consists of 12 segments, each of which features an admirer of Sam's dramatizing their interpretation of Sam's memoirs. Set in the late director’s historic office, the cast channels Fuller amid his beloved Royal typewriter, massive collection of books, screenplays, treatments, war memorabilia, and, of course, the ever-present big fat cigar.
A Fuller Life presents for the first time recently discovered 16mm films shot by Fuller, footage he shot on the front lines during World War II as well as location scouts and home movies. Every word spoken in this documentary, whether by a performer or from a clip from one of his films, was written by Samuel Fuller, creating a posthumous self-portrait of the subject in his own words.

Director's Biography

Samantha Fuller was born in Los Angeles on January 28th, 1975, the only child of filmmaker Samuel Fuller and writer-actress Christa Lang. The Fullers soon moved to Paris where Samantha received a French education and attended the Sorbonne, studying philosophy and translation. When her father died in 1997, she returned to L.A. and started a family, as well as a successful artisanal glass business. In 2011, the year before her father's centennial, she began exploring his historic office, an experience that inspired her to create A FULLER LIFE, a documentary based on his autobiography. She is now committed to maintaining the Samuel Fuller Archives while pursuing her own career in filmmaking.
