“Pedro’s got a pipebomb set for the 4th of July.”
– from the song Pedro’s Grave by RICANSTRUCTION
My film MACHETERO was inspired by RICANSTRUCTION’s 1st album Liberation Day. It was that album that gave the film it’s structure. During the final mix of MACHETERO Arturo & Joseph Rodriguez the rhythm section of RICANSTRUCTION talked about the how their creative process in writing the songs on the album. In this interview they speak about Pedro’s Grave which opened Liberation Day and was incorporated into the film. After the interview is the scene in which Pedro’s Grave was used in MACHETERO.
Check out the trailer for MACHETERO below…
