JASON FITZROY JEFFERS

JASON FITZROY JEFFERS

More than two hundred years ago, the slaves of Haiti defeated Napoleon’s armies in the historic revolutions that took place between 1791-1804. One of their weapons was the very tool they used to work the land, the machete. Papa Machete explores the esoteric martial art that evolved during the slave revolts through the practice and life of a farmer named Alfred Avril. The short film documents his proud devotion to his heritage in the face of bitter poverty, and his efforts to keep this mysterious art alive.
