All About Asado
(Todo sobre el asado)

  •   Mariano Cohn, Gastón Duprat

Part of Cinema/Chicago’s International Screenings Program


Worshipped alongside fútbol, Messi, and Malbec, “asado” (or barbecue) is a point of national pride for Argentinians. This inventive mix of documentary and fiction explores the ritual of grilling meats in the Latin American country. The film crew follows Carlos (played by celebrated comedian Carlos “El Negro” Álvarez) as he travels across the country and interviews cultural and grilling “experts” on the origins and significance of asado. Piquant and irreverent, All about Asado is a celebration of a nation’s cultural and culinary traditions.
