BAIT (2019)

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 summer season brings simmering tensions between 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 up to unwelcome change.
**FIRST PRESSING ONLY** Fully illustrated booklet with writing by Mark Jenkin, Jason Wood, film critic Jessica Kiang and writer and curator (and Flicks alumnus!) Tara Judah, and full film credits
