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, a hymn to independence, originality and endurance. Adapted from Samuel Fuller’s award-winning autobiography, the film consists of twelve 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.

In the presence of Samantha Fuller and Gillian Wallace Horvat (producer).
