The Liberation Day Tapes – Dream In Porto Rican


MACHETERO RICANSTRUCTION LIBERATION DAY
MACHETERO RICANSTRUCTION LIBERATION DAY

MACHETERO features several songs from the album Liberation Day by RICANSTRUCTION. The Liberation Day album was a concept album centered on the liberation struggle of Puerto Rico. While writing the script I listened to Liberation Day and found the songs influencing the narrative and the way in which the film could be structured.

Arturo and Joseph Rodriguez are the song writers (along with singer Not4Prophet), drummer and bass player for RICANSTRUCTION. When we were doing the final mix for MACHETERO Arturo and Joseph came by to talk about the how the songs for Liberation Day came together. In this segment they talk about the song DREAM IN PORTO RICAN…

Dream In Porto Rican is the prelude to MACHETERO. It opens the film. Dream in Porto Rican, is a list of demands and desires for a better future. It’s a declaration for freedom from the ills of a colonial mentality and immediately set the tone for the film. The images of the films prelude opens with the Young Rebel cutting his own hair to Dream In Porto Rican. The cutting of hair is symbolic of re-birth while the song is a declaration of independence.
