Barbecue

Taylor screening + bbq: taylor.barbecuefilm.com

Barbecue is about more than grilling a piece of meat. It’s a ritual performed religiously across the world. For some it’s a path to salvation. Every culture has a form of barbecue. It is the pride of nations. It brings the world together.

From Shisanyama in South Africa, to Engangsgrill in Sweden, people light the coals, gather, and tell their story. From the Syrian border to an outback Australian town, intimate portraits of those who stoke the flames reveal a bold vision of humanity.

Journeying to 12 countries, with glorious cinematic images in 4K and a rich orchestral score, "Barbecue" is a symphony of meat and fire told in epic detail.
