Written, directed, shot and edited by Cornish filmmaker Mark Jenkin, this instant classic deservedly won the BAFTA for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer. Skillfully combining a searing indictment of Cornwall’s housing crisis with a beautiful and original aesthetic shot on 16mm stock, the drama was produced by Bristol-based Early Day Films.





In a fishing village in Cornwall, two siblings - Martin (Edward Rowe) and Steven (Giles King) - have opposing views, with Martin barely making a living selling fish, while Steven takes tourists out to sight-see in their late father’s boat. As tensions between locals and tourists quickly rise to breaking point, timely and urgent themes around gentrification are explored.
