A dispute between two brothers over re-purposing their fishing boat for tourist trips becomes a metaphor for gentrification and the collapse of traditional ways of life in this strikingly shot film. Beneath the idyllic surface of a picturesque Cornish village, tensions between locals and tourists simmer in the summer sun, until a misguided prank brings things to boiling point. Director Mark Jenkin shot his film in black and white on a 1960’s clockwork Bolex 16mm camera and hand processed at home, which brings a palpable sense of history and nostalgia to some very contemporary issues.
