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 the 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 unwelcome change.

Showing as part of The Chiltern Film Society season - CFS members' choice.

"A rare find that is a truly original feature by a British director. Bait ferments weighty social themes into cinema so intoxicating it changes your blood-alcohol levels." - Empire

"One of the defining British films of the decade" - The Guardian
