Bosena presents ENYS MEN a film by Mark Jenkin

Enys Men (Cornish for stone island), an ecosophical horror film, is the next project from BAFTA winning writer/director Mark Jenkin.

Alone on an island crossed by leylines and timelines, with only an ancient standing stone for company, a woman is haunted by echoes of both the past and the future.

Enys. An island. Menhir. A standing stone. Jynnji. An engine house. Bleujen treweythus ow tevi yn-mysk remanans balweyth scattrys, ughel war’n alsyow. A rare flower growing amidst scattered mining remains, high on the cliffs. Hunros. A dream. Vysytyer. A visitor. Pott a de. A pot of tea. Hager-awel. A storm.

​“Unless we minimize the disruption of ecological processes, in the knowledge that our industrial way of life, with its ethos of expansion, is not sustainable, we shall inevitably face the collapse of society as we know it.” – A Blueprint for Survival, The Ecologist, 1972

“The eyes of all future generations are upon you.” – Greta Thunberg, 2019

Co-financed by Film4 Cornish Mining WHS Sound Image Cinema Lab and JFMC.
