Matthew Salleh | Australia | 2017 | 101 min | European Premiere | diverse languages with English subtitles
Barbecue is about more than grilling a piece of meat. From South Africa to 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.
“Barbecue is an intimate examination of those cultures visited, the people that keep these ancient traditions going across the world, and the things that all humanity has in common. Salleh says he and Tucker wanted from the outset to interview the “real people” in these places, not “PhDs in front of bookshelves” talking theoretically about barbecue.” – John Dexter, The Adelaide Review
“Engaged, celebratory doc is far more than just food porn … engaged and celebratory study of international cooking cultures” – Sean L. Malin, Austin Chronicle
