Date: Friday 6th March 2020
Film : 'Bait' (Cert.15)
Director: Mark Jenkin.
Stars: Ed Rowe, Mary Woodvine, Giles King & Simon Shepherd.
Film critic, Mark Kermode writes: “My favourite film of 2019 was Bait, the breakthrough feature from Cornish film-maker Mark Jenkin. An authentic portrait of tensions between locals and tourists in a once-thriving fishing village, it was shot with clockwork cameras on grainy 16mm stock, which Jenkin hand-processed in his studio in Newlyn.”
Modern-day Cornish fisherman Martin (Ed Rowe) is struggling to buy a boat while coping with family rivalry and the influx of London money, Airbnb and stag parties to his harbour village.
The summer season brings simmering tensions between the locals and newcomers to boiling point, with tragic consequences.
Stunningly shot on a vintage 16mm camera using monochrome Kodak stock, Mark Jenkin’s BAIT is a timely and funny, yet poignant new film that gets to the heart of a community facing unwelcome change.
