The documentary, which will premiere during Austin’s SXSW 2017 Film Festival, zeroes in on barbecue and the community surrounding it in 12 countries across the globe. No, y’all, Texas isn’t its own country.
Armenia, Australia, Japan, the Syria/Jordan border, Mexico, Mongolia, New Zealand, Philippines, South Africa, Sweden, the U.S. (Texas), and Uruguay are all featured. The filmmakers, Matthew Salleh and Rose Tucker, traveled together with minimal disruption in order to capture the real heart of barbecue across the world.
