Robert Minhinnick is an award-winning and acclaimed contemporary Welsh poet. Carol Ann-Duffy described him as ‘one of the most important poets of these turbulent times’.
Diary of The Last Man is a personal and poignant film built around several poems from Robert’s TS Eliot shortlisted collection of the same name.
We had the opportunity to translate this work into film in order to make it accessible to a wider audience and to create an archive of his culturally significant work. We combined interview, performance and poetry to create an interwoven film that explores his character as an artist, his alter egos, his writing and his personal story.
The film has been screened throughout the UK.
