“A genuine modern masterpiece” – Mark Kermode.


Martin Ward is a cove fisherman without a boat- his brother having repurposed their trawler as a day tripper for tourists and thus driven a wedge between the two. The height of the summer season finds Martin on the wrong side of simmering tension between the locals and tourists when a family tragedy changes everything.


Shot in Cornwall on 16mm black and white film and processed by hand, Bait is an utterly unique, handcrafted monochrome exploration of communities facing up to a changing world.
