The First Charge of the Machete AKA La primera carga al machete (1969) Manuel Octavio Gómez, Adolfo Llauradó, José Rodríguez, Idalia Anreus


The film documents an episode of the battle between Cuban rebels and the Spanish army, when, on the morning of October 25, 1868, the captured town of Bayamo was defended by the Dominican Maximo Gomez and his machete wielding troops. Rather than strictly record the battle in linear narrative sequence, Manuel Octavio Gomez chose to present the incident through a series of documentary style film essays. The film begins after the battle with an off screen interviewer asking defeated Spanish troops about their assailants. This material is immediately contrasted with the opinions of a group of Cuban sympathisers and a flashback then occurs, together with a shift in locale to Havana. Here a man seems to function as a kind of infiltrator/catalyst, challenging the inhabitants to reveal their allegiances. The complex structure is continued with an “instructional” section on the machete followed by a series of interviews with rebel soldiers constituting a search for the character of the leader from a foreign land, Maximo Gomez. After a segment where Spanish officers are interviewed, the action culminates with a long observational sequence of the battle, where the viewer is left to figure out strategy and development for itself (without the aid of a voice over).
