Director Mark Jenkin joins us for a discussion on one the defining British films on the decade BAIT. Hosted by Mark Kermode, this Q&A will be beamed live to your homes via, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook and Curzon Home Cinema. Winner of the 2020 BAFTA Award for Outstanding British Debut. This singularly beautiful debut film tells the story of a Cornish fishing village threatened by the rising tide of gentrification. Fisherman Martin seethes as his childhood home is bought and renovated into a tourist rental, and his brother uses their fishing boat as a pleasure cruiser. However, this is no simplistic tale of the old ways dying, and we are soon drawn into a tangled net of resentment, class and capitalism. A unique blending of subject and aesthetic, Mark Jenkin shot the film entirely on 16mm black and white film, hand processed the film and added all sound and dialogue in post-production. Truly handmade and avoiding the cliches of kitchen sink drama, Bait asks searching and neglected questions about modern Britain. ★★★★★ "One of the defining British films of the decade" - Mark Kermode, The Observer ★★★★★ "A rare find that is a truly original feature by a British director." - Sophie Monks Kaufman, Empire
