“It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.” – JLG
In Hip Hop that was known as – “It ain’t where ya from – it’s where ya at.”

i stole from a lot of sources to make my film MACHETERO… Here is a partial list of my thefts…

Pietri and Piñero,
LKJ and Bob Marley
Jarmusch and Godard
Albizu and Che
Oscar Lopez Rivera and Russell Maroon Shoatz
Archbishop Romero and Jesus Christ
Graffiti and garbage in the streets
Light spilling from the windows of a Chinese restaurant
The hallway of a squat in the Lower East Side
Teenagers on the street who improvised their way into the film without asking if they could
Filiberto and Fanon
A Dominican Restaurant in the Lower East Side called Cibao
An abandon house on the shore of Rio Grande in Loiza
Los Macheteros and the FALN
RICANSTRUCTION
The abandon lot behind the Lolita Lebron mural that used to be on 109th & Lex in El Barrio
The Brecht Forum when it was in Chelsea
Dylcia Pagan from the parole board
The extra 2 hours in the prison in the Bronx we didn’t pay the guards or the city for
The basement of a Philadelphia row house
The Amtrak tracks in Washington Heights
My grandparents house in Williamsburg Brooklyn
The house being gut renovated in Corona Queens
The big hill on 102nd Street and Lex in El Barrio
The Puerto Rican flag painted on a wall on 104th btwn Lex & 3rd but closer to 3rd in El Barrio
The nerve to think we could do whatever we wanted
Studio time to do the voice overs
The grave of Adolfina Villanueva in a cemetery in Loiza
