The Last Press

Roger Wilkins is a well-known character throughout Somerset (and the world). Having frequented cookery shows across major TV channels, he has found small-scale fame for the provenance of his cider and warmth of his well-oiled hospitality. Now the fifth generation to farm in Somerset, Roger's legacy and that of traditional cider making lies with his grandson, Dan. Dan and Roger have learnt to make cider in very different times, but some things remain constant; a passion for their work, for the countryside and for creating a punchy product.


Director Bio

Thomas came to film via a winding career path through the laboratory, on the stage and offshore sailing. Inspired by curiosity across fields and disciplines, his work is reflective of these experiences. More recently, since living in the city, his attention has turned to human interaction with the environment and with food. As a way of reconnecting and reframing a relationship with his farming heritage, he aims to explore creative catharsis through nature. Drawn to big characters, he seeks to display them with the subtlety, respect and authenticity they deserve. Thomas works closely with OmVed Gardens, a food project in North London, finding stories through collaborators and artists in the physical space.
