200 years ago, the slaves of Haiti defeated Napoleon’s armies with the very tool they used to work the land: the machete. Papa Machete explores the esoteric martial art that evolved from this victory through the life and practice of “Professor” Alfred Avril, a poor, aging farmer who is one of the art’s few remaining masters.
