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 Cornish community facing up unwelcome change.
Modern-day Cornish fisherman Martin (Edward 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 idea of an idyllic Cornish village is a thing of the past and as the summer season heats up, simmering tensions between the locals and newcomers rise to boiling point.
Hypnotic and nostalgic, BAIT’s distinctive visual style is not afraid to ask searching or neglected questions about modern Britain.
