Bait

  • Film

Martin Ward is a fisherman in a Cornish harbour village. He fell out with his brother, who repurposed their father’s boat for tourist trips. As Martin struggles to save money to buy his own boat, the family rivalry takes its toll. Tension escalates in the picturesque village as the summer season brings in teenage holidaymakers and AirBnBers. 

Mark Jenkin’s debut feature is shot on a beautiful black-and-white 16mm contributing to its lo-fi vintage vibe.
