Blood and Booze: A Drink With Italian Horror Comedy Director Michele Senesi

Cult classic auteur talks wine guzzling and floundering film scenes before screening his necrophiliac flick. By Kyle Mullin for The Beijinger, Mar. 24 2012

When booze is your muse, it’s hard not to be a rowdy nuisance. But tipsy delinquency was Italian director Michele Senesi’s very intention when he released  2008’s Bumba Atomika, a punch drunk necrophiliac horror flick where wine and blood flow in equal measure – maybe even in quantities large enough to quench Italy’s parched indie film scene.

The Beijing International Movie Center is gulping down Senesi’s spirit of intoxicated debauchery by serving up Bumba on March 25 at the China Museum of Digital Arts (CMoDA) as the first in a series of art house Sunday screenings that will run throughout the spring season. Senesi will be there in person to whet our appetites and field audience questions. Beforehand, he poured out a sample in an interview for TheBeijinger.com – dabbling in everything from which Monty Python alum he’s collaborating with, to why an Italian might call you “bumba” if you’re ill-behaved at the bar.
