About the film:

Official Selection, 2022 Cannes Film Festival

A wildlife volunteer on an uninhabited island off the British coast descends into a terrifying madness that challenges her grip on reality and pushes her into a living nightmare. Shot on 16mm film and set in 1973, Enys Men (2023) evokes the feeling of discovering a reel of never-before-seen celluloid unspooling in a haunted movie palace.
