One Million Dubliners

ONE MILLION DUBLINERS reveals the often unspoken stories of ritual, loss, love, redemption, emotion, history – and the business of death.
 

One Million Dubliners story line

Glasnevin Cemetery is the final resting place of 1.5 million souls; it is Ireland’s national necropolis. ONE MILLION DUBLINERS reveals the often unspoken stories of ritual, loss, love, redemption, emotion, history – and the business of death.

But this is really a film about life: the Saint Valentine’s Day rush in the florists; the American visitors eagerly searching for Irish ancestors; lost and longed for love; discovery and bereavement; earthy gravediggers and musicians in celebration.  Above all, it’s the story of an immensely engaging Tour Guide shepherding his charges – and us – through the headstones and monuments, through opinions and beliefs.  Filled with the familiar and the fascinating, this is a documentary that offers a glimpse into the unknown, into a world we will all come to share.

Often humorous, always affecting, ONE MILLION DUBLINERS explores life, death and the afterlife, and ends in a way that will stay with you forever.  Even in a cemetery you never quite get used to death.

“All these here once walked around Dublin. Faithful departed. As you are now so once were we.” – ‘Ulysses’, James Joyce

An UNDERGROUND FILMS production in association with RTÉ and the BROADCASTING AUTHORITY OF IRELAND in association with SHOOT FOR THE MOON and with the participation of BORD SCANNÁN NA hÉIREANN / THE IRISH FILM BOARD
