Bait, which premiered at the latest Berlinale, conveys the story of a wedge between brothers in an isolated community through an unconventional technique. Director Mark Jenkin used a Bolex camera and 16mm B&W film and processed it by hand, and as a result the steep hillsides, expressive faces, fishermen’s nets, barbecue smoke are reflected on to the screen in an ever-changing light and texture. Located at the southwestern tip of England, this picturesque fishing village in Cornwall, which weathers the waves of the Celtic Sea as alienation, resentment, and anger washing up the shore, bears witness to economic hardships, gentrification, and family conflicts though a grainy, black & white aesthetic.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
