Dubbed a 'dreamlike masterpiece' and 'one of the defining British films of the decade' in a 5 star review by film critic Mark Kermode, you won't have seen many movies like Bait before. 

A story of rising tensions in a Cornish fishing village, the 89 minute feature is described as a Brexit parable and is shot on 16mm film on clockwork cameras with audio added in post production. 

We speak to its director Mark Jenkin, who recently won a BAFTA for outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer, and a British Independent Film Award.
