Directed by Manuel Octavio Gómez | 1969

With Idalia Anreus, Eslinda Nunez, Ana Vinas

Cuban farmers turn their machetes against Spanish colonialists in this highly experimental recreation of an 1868 battle for independence. Told in a gritty, cinéma vérité style, The First Charge of the Machete uses swirling handheld camerawork, authentically aged-looking, high-contrast black and white photography, and pseudo-documentary interviews with participants to create the impression of an artifact unearthed.
