+ intro by director Mark Jenkin
Expect the unexpected, and dive into the atmospheric world of Bait…

Dir Mark Jenkin
With Edward Rowe, Mary Woodvine, Giles King, Simon Shepherd
To coincide in with the BFI’s dual format (DVD and Blu-ray) and BFI Player release of Bait, we’re thrilled to be presenting the film with a live score from Gwenno Saunders. Saunders won the Welsh Music Prize in 2015 for her stunning album Y Dydd Olaf. Her 2018 follow up, Le Kov, is performed exclusively in Cornish (her first language) – so the stars aligned when director Mark Jenkin asked her to be a part of the soundtrack to his Cornish film about a fisherman’s struggle to preserve his traditional way of life. With Saunders’ background in dance, theatre and performance, expect the unexpected with this new take on the atmospheric world of Bait.
Tickets £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less), booking essential.
