What is the plot of Enys Men?
In 1973, on a deserted island near the Cornish coast, a wildlife volunteer’s daily observations of a rare flower become a metaphysical journey, blurring the line between reality and nightmare. The only indicator of the passing time is a fruticose lichen growing on the flowers and the protagonist’s body over three days. She encounters a mysterious standing stone, a teenage girl who may be her daughter or younger self, an enigmatic preacher who could be her father, ghostly miners haunting the island’s tunnels, and a fisherman who may have been her past love interest.
Enys Men, filmed during the COVID-19 lockdown, focused on maintaining a small carbon footprint throughout production. The film had its premiere in the Directors’ Fortnight section of the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
