August’s Courtyard Cinema at Ward Village Screening: BARBECUE

The August screening at COURTYARD CINEMA at WARD VILLAGE is the award winning documentary BARBECUE, a global spanning film that showcases the mutual human tradition of cooking meat over flame in bringing communities together, from the Mongolian steppe, to an izakaya in Tokyo, to factory-size fire pits cooking lechon in the Philippines, to the heart of Texas for the best smoked brisket anywhere.


A symphony of meat and fire, BARBECUE shows us how an everyday ritual is shared by cultures around the world, as a way to celebrate community, friendship, and tradition. A film told in 13 languages, from Texas to the Syrian border, from ‘Shisanyama’ to ‘Lechon’, BARBECUE is a film about the simple truths in life that bring people together, and how barbecue is a path to salvation.

Warning: Some graphic images of animal mutilation.
