A traditional Cornish fishing village is morphing into a trinket shop as elite second-homers move in. Fisherman Martin (Rowe) responds initially with a humorous twinkle but ugly tensions are mounting. Writer/director Jenkin’s original cinematographic style is part of Bait’s considerable appeal – grainy, flawed 16mm black and white Kodak film is a perfect visual fit with the elemental world it favours, and runs alongside a soundtrack resounding with the bang and clatter of working life. Compelling social realism.

★★★★★ “a genuine modern masterpiece… set to become one of the defining British films of the year, perhaps the decade”Mark Kermode, The Guardian

The programme will also include our current BRIT School Showcase film RITUALS (PG, 5 mins), directed by Simisolaoluwa Akande. This reflective Year 13 film was part of a World Cinema strand.
