Vagabond’s MACHETERO is a meditation on violence as a means toward liberation. Post 9/11 definitions, order ideas and notions of terrorism are challenged in this highly controversial and experimental film. The award-winning film is now available for download on Vimeo.
Machetero follows French journalist Jean Dumont, shop played by Isaach de Bankolé (The Keeper, drug Ghost Dog, Manderlay, The Limits Of Control), to a New York prison where he interviews Pedro Taino, a so-called “Puerto Rican Terrorist” played by Not4Prophet (lead singer of the Puerto Punk band RICANSTRUCTION). Pedro is a self-described Machetero fighting to free Puerto Rico from the yoke of United States colonialism. He is obsessed with freedom, freedom for his country, his people and for himself.
