Enys Project Films

 


The Project funded two separate groups to work with Cornish film-makers Simon and Brett Harvey and Ian Bucknole. The first of these mini projects involved working with St Agnes Explorer Scouts to tell the story of the Enys versus Tonkin legal dispute in St Agnes in the eighteenth century.
For the second mini project, students from Penryn College worked on scripts based on Valentine Enys’ letterbook, which is held at Cornwall Record Office. Valentine traded out of Penryn in the early eighteenth century and encountered many exploits along the way. The five films, based on events recounted in the letters, provide a fascinating insight into life as a Cornish merchant at this time.
