“When i saw Machetero i thought, young director from the hood… actors from the hood… shoe-string budget with never enough… and finally a badaassss movie with  the courage to produce a really alive and resurgent revolutionary DIY message from the unconquerable urban jibaro. With an underground spirit this movie is a prescription for doing the impossible. What a breath of fresh Puerto Rican beach air in these stank neo-liberal US imperial times! You can smell the thick sweet scent of insurgent Libertad!  A must see. No really, a MUST see.”
– Ashanti Alston
