Modern-day Cornish fisherman Martin is struggling to buy a boat while coping with family rivalry and the influx of London money, holiday-homes and stag parties to his harbour village. The summer season brings simmering tensions within the community to boiling point, with tragic consequences.
Martin Ward is a cove fisherman, without a boat. His brother Steven has re-purposed their father’s vessel as a tourist tripper, driving a wedge between the brothers. With their childhood home now a get-away for London money, Martin is displaced to the estate above the picturesque harbor. As his struggle to restore the family to their traditional place creates increasing friction with tourists and locals alike, a tragedy at the heart of the family changes his world.
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 change.
Starring Ed Rowe, Mary Woodvine, Giles Smith, Simon Shepherd
