    "Hireth"
    (Cornish word meaning 'longing for home' )

    A Film of the Theatre Show and the Making of a Documentary 

    1914. West Cornwall. Harry Elton is starting a new life below the ground mining for tin.

    Across the channel, a great war rages.

    When the British Army arrive with an unexpected offer, Harry and his friends swap the dirty, dark and dangerous tunnels of Geevor for the deadly underground warzone beneath the Western front.

    ‘You battle everyday with nature. You fight to drag minerals from the ground. You’re already fighters. You’re already warriors. Its time for you to lend those skills to the war effort’.

    This epic production tells the untold story of Cornwall’s forgotten war heroes and the unique impact they had on the First World War.

    Featuring a cast of professional actors and a community chorus, 'Hireth' marked the centenary of the end of World War 1 in the Grade-II listed St Just Miners’ Chapel in November 2019.

    Cornwall World Heritage Site is delighted to support the showing of the Hireth film in communities in Cornwall and West Devon.

    Film : 'Bait' (Cert.15)Director: Mark Jenkin.
    Stars: Ed Rowe, Mary Woodvine, Giles King & Simon Shepherd.

    Film critic, Mark Kermode writes: “My favourite film of 2019 was Bait, the breakthrough feature from Cornish film-maker Mark Jenkin.  An authentic portrait of tensions between locals and tourists in a once-thriving fishing village, it was shot with clockwork cameras on grainy 16mm stock, which Jenkin hand-processed in his studio in Newlyn.” 

    Modern-day Cornish fisherman Martin (Ed Rowe) is struggling to buy a boat while coping with family rivalry and the influx of London money, Airbnb and stag parties to his harbour village.
    The summer season brings simmering tensions between the locals and newcomers to boiling point, with tragic consequences.

    Stunningly shot on a vintage 16mm camera using monochrome Kodak stock, Mark Jenkin’s BAIT is a timely and funny, yet poignant new film that gets to the heart of a community facing unwelcome change.
