Bait, dir. Mark Jenkin, UK 2018, 89 min., English, 15
Filmed in black and white on a hand-cranked 16mm Bolex, Bait is a unique, genre-defying new feature from British writer-director Mark Jenkin.
Set in a modern-day Cornish village, the film follows disgruntled fisherman Martin, who is struggling to buy a boat while coping with family rivalry and the influx of London money, Airbnb and stag parties to his coastal town. The summer season brings simmering tensions between the locals and newcomers to boiling point, with tragic consequences.
