CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
7 - 9 SEPTEMBER
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, 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. Often humorous, always affecting, One Million Dubliners explores life, death and the afterlife, and ends in a way that will stay with you forever.
