Robert Minhinnick and Eamon Bourke

Diary of The Last Man

Venue: Richard Booth’s Bookshop Cinema

Director Eamon Bourke’s film Diary of The Last Man delves deep into the themes of Minhinnick’s poetry in search of the man himself. Combining poetry, performance, interview and layered imagery, the film explores the many identities of the poet, real and imagined. A beautiful, strange and meditative film, it brings the landscapes of Minhinnick’s home into sharp focus, revealing some of the hidden places at the core of his writing and offers a glimpse of the inner workings of the poet. The film Diary of the Last Man is screened, following an introduction by Eamon Bourke. As the film finishes, Robert Minhinnick takes to the stage to perform poetry from his 2017 T.S. Eliot Prize shortlisted collection of the same title, Diary of the Last Man.
