Cornish filmmaker Mark Jenkin joins the pod to discuss his new film Enys Men, now playing in cinemas nationwide. We talk about the legacy of big, scary stones in British horror, working with a skeleton crew, hand-processing 16mm film, eco-friendly filmmaking, and creating soundtracks entirely in post. We also discuss his remarkable BAFTA-winning previous feature Bait, which returns to select theaters this weekend.
