“THE SUCCESS OF ‘BAIT’ PROVES THAT NOBODY KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT ANYTHING”… MARK JENKIN INTERVIEW
21st January 2020
MEET the man behind British indie film Bait, Mark Jenkin.
He has written and directed a film delving into how gentrification is affecting local people in a Cornish Fishing village. When we met Mark he shared his vision, the surprise success and the importance independent films play in cinema right now. Guys he shot the whole thing entirely on 16mm black and white film, hand processed the film while the sound was added after! In this day and age that is super strange but we find it remarkable and refreshing. Modern Britain is in a mess and this film shows the emotion, pain and also love people have to industries, heritage and family. In a world where most are controlled or pressured to conform Mark has proven there is an appetite to tell the stories of people that often get forgotten.
Bait is now available on Digital, DVD, & Blu-ray!
