Antonella Fulci on "Fulci For Fake" and the complexity of Lucio Fulci's legend

Antonella Fulci sounds energised when she addresses her contribution to "Fulci For Fake", the part documentary and part biopic about her late, great father Lucio Fulci, which Fractured Visions show at Chapter on December 7th. "I was lucky enough to have a good relationship through the entire production. People love my father and there is nothing like this film around. They could only watch his films, now they can see a film made about him in 2019," says Fulci, who gave director Simone Scafidi never seen before home footage, photo's and a rare interview. We sat down with the maestro's daughter to celebrate and discuss the only screening of "Fulci For Fake" in Cardiff, the re-appraisal and re-discovery of the Italian godfather of gore's films, memories of being on set for "Zombie" and more!
