Enys Men (15) (AD)

Still from Enys Men

Director Mark Jenkin's follow-up to Bait is a beguiling Cornish folk horror shot in lush 16mm.

Enys Men is a mind-bending folk horror set in 1973 that unfolds on an uninhabited island off the Cornish coast. Mary Woodvine stars as a wildlife volunteer whose daily observations of a rare flower take a dark turn into the strange and metaphysical, forcing both her and viewers to question what is real and what is nightmare. Is the landscape not only alive but sentient? Shot by Mark Jenkin on grainy 16mm colour film stock and with his trademark post-synched sound, the form feels both innovative and authentic to the period. Filmed on location around the disused tin mines of West Penwith, it is also an ode to Cornwall’s rich folklore and natural beauty.
