89 mins – United Kingdom 2019 – Dir: Mark Jenkin
Starring: Morgan Val Baker, Georgia Ellery and Martin Ellis

Modern-day fisherman Martin is struggling to buy a boat while coping with family rivalry and the influx of London money, Airbnb and stag parties to his Cornish 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 black and white film, Bait is a timely and funny, yet poignant new film that gets to the heart of a community facing unwelcome change.

Screening with Bait is the short archival film Away to the West (3 minutes). This travelogue piece was shot in the Cornish fishing village of Newlyn in 1926.
