Machetero chronicles the struggle of Pedro Taino (Not4Prophet, lead singer for the Puerto punk band Ricanstruction) a Puerto Rican "terrorist" who finds himself imprisoned via his acts of revolutionary violence. In focusing on Pedro's obsession to free himself and his people, this film poses questions that are prevalent post 9/11; What is a terroist and what is a freedom fighter? Who has the power to define these roles? Do victims of colonialism have the right to take up arms against their oppressor?

Not4Prophet will attend and take part in a post show Q&A.
