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 from London Money, Martin is displaced to the estate above the picturesque harbour. 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.

Bait was shot on 16mm B&W film and processed by hand. Shot in Cornwall, it tells the stark story rooted in local culture and community, and how these marginal places are facing up to a changing world. From writer/director Mark Jenkin and Early Day Films, Bait is a hand crafted monochrome expression of a life under threat.

Winner Of a BAFTA Film Award, and a British Independent Film Award.
