Storyline

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. 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. Written by Underground Films

More than just a documentary, more than just an insight into Glasnevin cemetery. It is humorous, sad, joyous, poignant and evocative. A life affirming look at death.

Truly excellent film. Well worth the wait. We see the inner workings of Glasnevin cemetery, we see the graves of the famous that are buried there, but most importantly we meet the people that work there, that more than work there. They bring it to life, not literally, but you know what I mean. The MD seems to be a really lovely man who 'picked the best flower for himself' (sweet sweet sweet). Shane Mac Thomais, the historian is beyond charming and funny, he loves the place and you know it. Watch out for the woman tourist in green, her face is full of character. The grave digging is a fine art. The crematorium technician is a lovely fellow. Aoife has done a great job of interlinking all these characters, the graves and the visitors so that the sum of the parts is an extraordinarily poignant and life affirming look at death.
