Barbeque is the visceral journey of coping with posttraumatic stress disorder by Jenny Jokela. Using fluid, textured animation, the film visualizes feelings and experiences that might be too difficult or painful to put into words and illustrates the circular process of coping. The film is hand-painted with acrylic paint.
Jokela is a Finnish-Swedish animation director based in London. Her work explores non-patriarchal ways of expressing female sexuality and femininity.
