One Million Dubliners | Directed by Aiofe Kelleher | 1 hour and 20 min. Documentary | Ireland, 2014.

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.
